Yanceyville First Baptist Church (partial census; 59 gravestone photographs):

Yanceyville Presbyterian Church (complete census; 217 gravestone photographs):

Yanceyville United Methodist Church (partial census; 64 gravestone photographs):

Thanks to Allen Dew of Cemetery Census for taking CCHA gravestone photographs, using them to create or supplement a cemetery census, and posting the census information and the gravestone photographs to the Cemetery Census website for all to use in their research.

Thanks also to those who submitted gravestone photographs and cemetery information.

Many of these raw gravestone images for the cemeteries listed above can be found at the Caswell County Photograph Collection (see link below). These not indexed other than by name of the cemetery, but they are available in various resolutions (sizes) and are easy to download.

Do you have Caswell County cemetery information? Please share it.

Also, the Caswell County Historical Association is seeking people (individuals or a group) to adopt a cemetery for purposes of census taking and photographing gravestones. If you, your church, or your organization are interested please contact me at:

Thanks and best regards.
