Carolina Caswell determined the possible location of this cemetery by Caswell County NC Deed Book 201 page 821. Dudley Gatewood (1747-1836) lived just south of Danville, Virginia in the area still called Gatewood, North Carolina. The old Dudley Gatewood house where Pres. George Washington spent the night of June 3, 1791 was moved to Hillsborough, North Carolina on S. Churton Street near Interstate 85 in the 1970s. The historic old house is now an attraction in the Daniel Boone Village. The old Gatewood house is drawn on an 1890 map along "Dix' Ferry Road" [Walter's Mill Road] near the Virginia line when the tract is 760 acres [on both sides of the highway]. This cemetery does not have a survey of record in the J. Burch Blaylock Collection.
