This was Tar River Jimmy's home place cemetery and has a little over a dozen marked graves in it.
Take Route 15 south and cross Tar River. Turn right on Smith Rd. Drive 3/10 mile and turn into a path to the right. Park and walk for approximately 1/2 mi. down a short dirt path - passing a derelict house which was the Federalist/Italian Revivalist Mansion that James Crews built at the source of the Tar River. Also pass the old slave quarters to a fork in the path. The cemetery is in the `V' of the fork. There is one large rectangular stone with no markings. There are also countless unmarked graves which are probably the graves of slaves, including one for "Cora" who was born a slave onto the Tar River Plantation, lived and served prior to, during, and after the Civil War. Cora lived at Tar River her entire life, and died in her 90's still on the property, and still in the (unpaid) service of LeRoy Crews.
