|Location: This cemetery is now under the pavement of a parking lot
in uptown Roxboro. Although the general location of the original cemetery is still known,
the best location is provided by the WPA survey which indicates the cemetery is
"located about 100 yards across the street from Person County Courthouse, being
directly in back of Hyco Warehouse." The cemetery was behind the buildings directly
across from the Person County Courthouse and on the East side of Main Street, thus in the
area to the South of the present Senior Center. When the cemetery was paved over for a
parking lot, the tombstones were removed.
Access: No visible sign remains but burials are still there.
Survey: 1937 by WPA, GPS by Ken and Becky
GPS: 36 23 35.4 N 078 58 57.7 W
