Dick Long Family Cemetery
Location: Ceffo
Directions: Semora Road (NC 57) to Concord-Ceffo Road (SR 1340) at Concord. Right on Concord-Ceffo Road. Concord-Ceffo Road to McGees Mill Road (SR 1337). Cemetery is in the woods behind the house across McGees Mill Road from the stop sign at the Concord-Ceffo Road and McGees Mill Road intersection.
Survey by: Barry Whitfield, 2009

This graveyard is in a bad state of disrepair. It is over grown and many of the headstones are broken and lying on the ground. There may be some that are completely covered with leaves that I missed.

The WPA Survey, names this graveyard as the Dick Long Family Cemetery. However, some of the death certificates of those buried there, names the graveyard as The Jessie Rainie Cemetery and others The Long Cemetery.  Jessie owned the farm for a time, he was the son of Richard H. Long.   I believe this grave is on the farm of Richard H. Long.

A number of the people buried there are descendants of Richard H. Long:

William B Long (son)
Robert Davis Long (son)
Susan Dixon (daughter-in-law)
Green Jefferson Clayton (son-in-law)
Chestina T. Evans (granddaughter)
William M. Evans (grandson-in-law)
James T. Evans (great grandson)
Nora E. Evans (great granddaughter)
Myrtle Evans (great granddaughter)
R. L. King (grandson-in-law)
John M. Long (son)
Mary Fannie Dillihey (daughter-in-law)

Buried in graveyard

Based on Death Certificates:

Mary Fannie Dillihey wife of John M. Long, born 5 Feb 1849, Died 21 Apr 1922. Death certificate lists her place of burial as Jessie Long Family Cemt.

John M. Long son of Richard H. Long and Arrilla Mann, born 18 Dec 1849, Died 18 Sep 1928. Death certificate lists his place of burial as Long Burying Ground.

The approximate location of this cemetery is marked on this map by the red block.
This location is a guess on may part since my last visit to this cemetery was many
years ago. The cemetery is on private property, so you will need to get permission
to visit and can get specific directions then.
