Edwin Johnson Robertson Jr. Cemetery
Location: beside 3512 Woodsdale Road (SR 1326)
Directions: US501N to Woodsdale Road; Woodsdale Road to Woodsdale; Cemetery is just north of Woodsdale on the right side of road.
Access: Close to the road, within block wall, beside woods containing Woody cemetery.
Survey: July 7, 2004 by Ed Clayton and Mar 2005 by Ken Dalton and Becky Farlow
GPS: 36 29 32.8 N 078 57 39.9 W
Ownership: This cemetery has been deeded to the Person County Historical Society. The tract is identifed in book 179 pages 261, 262, 263, 264. The plat was recorded in Register of Deeds on Aug 7, 1984
The tract is identifed in GIS (tax records) as record number 16686; is shown on tax map A57 79; and is indentified by PIN 0919-00-18-4138.000. The plat was recorded in Register of Deeds in 1980 as 19-321. (This is in conflict with the date above - verify.)
This cemetery was combined with the cemetery donated by the Woody family into a single 1.77 acre tract but is listed separately here  because the burials are distinctly separate. All the burials at Robertson are within a block wall. Woody burials are 200 feet from the wall. The Woody Cemetery is the former site of the old Woodsdale Methodist Episcopal Church
