Myrtle Grove Cemetery location
There are two cemeteries with the Myrtle Grove name, and we found both of them. One is behind the First Born Holiness Church at 6601 Carolina Beach Road. This is also referred to as the Freeman Cemetery is actually located down a narrow forest path where the grave markers appear to be random, among very tall trees on heavily forested land. It almost looks like it could have been a battlefield as most of the markers indicate deaths that occurred in the 1800s with graves on either side of the path, and some literally along the edge of the road.
The other Myrtle Grove Cemetery is on the opposite side of Carolina Beach Road, NEXT to a church. Again, no paved road, but a path that leads into the graveyard. If heading south on the Carolina Beach Road, the church and Myrtle Grove Cemetery are on the right side. Some trees are there, but not heavily forested like the one across the road.

RE: Leon Williams
Hi Nancy,

Thank you. Unfortunately, I do not live close to Texarkana, but maybe if you edit the burial location, someone who is near there can go look!

Leon Williams
Hi Nancy,

I was preparing to go photograph the grave marker for Leon Williams, but I found an inventory of Shiloh Cemetery in Corinth, TX, and he is not listed. There are two other Williamses with unmarked graves around them. Not sure if there are relatives also in that cemetery. Do you have any additional information?

Here is the inventory: http://cityofcorinth.com/DocumentCenter/View/5228

RE: Myrtle Grove Cemetery in N.C.
Ms. Nancy, unfortunately I have no idea where the Myrtle Grove Cemetery is. I entered it in Find A Grave based on info included on my GGM's death certificate. While visiting NC this past summer, we were unable to even GET to the cemetery where my grandfather is buried (Haw Hill) as it is now on private land. I suspect that the Myrtle Grove Cemetery may be on private land, although I have no way of confirming that. Have you contacted the North Carolina Board of Cemeteries for any information about Myrtle Grove? What about any of the local funeral homes? Wish I could offer more. Good luck in your search!!

RE: Rochelle in Pender County
Good morning,

I actually don't remember where that cemetery is. It's been so long since I was there. Back then, I'd carry my little grave hunting notebook wherever I went & would record entries even on vacation.

I must've run across the cemetery somewhere during my travels.

You might want to contact the Dunn Funeral Home in Burgaw, NC (910-259-9400). There's an obituary which states they handled one of the burials in the Rochelle Family Cemetery. Maybe they'll know where to find it. Hope this helps :)

Thanks!
For the reply,etc. Other found Death Certificates have since proven that the name of the cemetery of that time period was named as the family surname as the information I used that gave the name I used as entered when entering the cemetery to Find A Grave. I felt if the name was not important as in relation to the name of the cemetery, why was it selected to be the name of the cemetery, so that is why I searched and found out more.

Thanks again.

Henderson-Parker, aka Henderson Family Cemetery
This cemetery is approxamatly 100x100 feet square and is located in Kellum, NC
off US-17 North behind the sand pit located on the Morton Trucking Co. property
about 1.7 miles North of Piney Green Road on the right. To access it you will
need to turn right into the drive of the Trucking Co. and follow the road until
you come to the entrance to the large earthen ramp. At that point turn down the
road on the left side and go down about 500 feet and you will find a telephone
pole on the right and the lake on the left. The cemetery is 30 feet to the right
of the telephone pole. The begining of the cemetery starts about 42 feet before
the pole and ends about 49 feet past the pole. The rows start on the Northeast
corner and run South. There has currently been 6 rows deep and up to 14 rows
wide identified. Not all of the graves have been found yet as we are still in the
process of cleaning it. The following is supplied out of personal knowledge,
information from area residents, family history, found graves with stones,
and the basic knowledge of old cemetery layouts. Some of the stones were wooden,
some have been destroyed and or buried, some are still in place, and some have
been replaced. This will be updated as progress continues:Onslow Co.GenWeb
