Quoted from FAMILY CEMETERIES, by Webb, p. 150:
{Whatley Cemetery} Land Lot 74 of 15th Militia District off State Route 109 (Roanoke Road) near Antioch community. A slave cemetery on right, at one time ninety graves counted, marked with field stone. (The first grave in this cemetery is that of Archie Whatley's great-grandfather, who gave the land for the cemetery. When land was cleared, he found a wild turkey nest under a poplar tree. He did not cut the tree nor clear around it. The tree is still standing outside the fenced cemetery, and is about fifteen feet in circumference.
