Search Elijah Smith Cemetery:

The Elijah "Lige" Smith Cemetery aka Smith or Smith-Gwyn Cemetery, is located in Heaton, Avery County, North Carolina, off of 194 on top of a hill behind a few houses on Hope Lane. This is most likely on private property and I had to ask a woman if it was OK to trek through her backyard up the hill to go find it. There are lots of weeds/briars and was straight up into the woods, and it was (when I took these photos in 2010) completely untended. The woman I asked was very kind and was married to a descendant of Elijah Smith. There are several graves, 5 of which have traditional headstones, and the rest maybe 4-6, are either marked with rocks or completely unmarked.
