Family Cemetery on Private Property
This woodland cemetery contains several dozen graves marked only by planted fieldstones used for headstones and footstones.
It is possible the graves belong to the ancestors (Smithey, Randolph, Allen) of David Lawson Smithey and/or his wife, Nancy Randolph. D. L. Smithey was the owner of this property in the middle 1800s. His neigbors and adjoining property owners at the time were Joseph H. Totten, other Smitheys and other relatives such as James and Joseph Allen.
Rockingham County NC Deed Book 851 page 360 is a plat of the cemetery or graveyard and adjoining properties in 1991. In 1920 the Deed in Book 211 page 403 references the Smithey graveyard. The 1875 Deed in Book 3F page 84 references Smithey as an adjoining land owner to Joseph H. Totten. Plat Books of reference include 9/18, 9/17, 54/97. Deed Books of reference include 321/219, 528/483-485, 171/69, 678/431.
