Search Guthrie-Marshall Cemetery:

This tiny graveyard lies within Horizons Park, a 492 acre recreational park in Forsyth County, just outside the Winston-Salem City limits. Thirty years ago, this area was largely farmland and these graves were located beneath a huge tree about 200' away from their current location. The county continues to raise hay on the large open field where the graves were located. But the county mowing equipment could not adequately negotiate around the stones and some of them (even now) are in sadly declining shape and so the graves were moved to the edge of the wooded area within sight of the tree that protected them all those years. Several of the gravestones cannot be read. All seem to be young women or children. A newly erected stone proclaims this cemetery to be for "Children of Jackson Guthrie and Edward Marshall." The graveyard may be visited by taking the A Loop Trail from the main parking area of Horizons Park. It is approximately a 20 minute walk to the cemetery. Longitude/Latitude in decimal degrees format is shown on the map in this listing. GPS coordinates (in decimal minutes format) are N 36 13.433 W 80 13.591 (probably the only way you will be able to find the cemetery).
