This cemetery off Highway 200 North was surveyed about 1979 by Charles Bivens and two others. He noted at the time that there were about 17 graves with only six - eight readable markers. The North Carolina Survey form notes the name as "Old Presson". A death certificate for one of those buried here had the name of the cemetery as "Samuel Presson" thus it is believed that the original name of the cemetery was the "Samuel Presson Cemetery"(this is also supported by family history from descendants).

The great granddaughter of Samuel Presson, Lydia Presson McManus, also did a reading of this cemetery at the request of Mary Lee Martin Ervin who wrote a history of the Presson family. (please see Walter Gibson's memorial at this cemetery for the name of the book)

The cemetery was visited in 2017 and the markers known to be there from one of those earlier readings were seen. Some mistakes or missing information were also corrected/added. Thank you to Carolina Grave Hunter and Marg for doing the field work for this.
