Search County Home Cemetery:

Location: At the NW corner of the Efland-Cedar Grove Road (SR-1004) intersection with Lebanon Road (SR-1306), about 1-1/2 miles north of Efland.

Additional information: The Orange County Home/Poor House was established in 1823 and closed in 1941. Over those years, many persons lived there and the available records indicate a number died there. It is unknown how many of these persons were buried in the Home cemetery, as apparently no burial records were kept. The 1880 Census Mortality Schedule mentions nearly 100 deaths at the County Home from 1858 to 1880, but none of these entries stated the person was buried in the cemetery. Names are listed here only when a clear burial indication from a gravestone, record, or verifiable statement is found. Where a record indicates only that a resident "died" at the institution no assumption is made they were buried in the cemetery. There were three marked graves and three graves marked by depressions.
