I found an obituary for Henry Cocke but, unfortunately, it does not name a cemetery. The obit which was in the Biblical Recorder, Raleigh, NC (a Baptist publication) indicates he lived near Rolesville, NC, that he was 74 years of age and that in his 70th year, "he professed the religion of Jesus Christ".

I'd be happy to email you a pdf of the obit if you like.

Rolesville, NC was a farming community incorporated in 1837. According to their website, Rolesville Baptist Church was formed in Oct 1834 by members of the Rogers Crossroads Baptist Church (now Wake Crossroads Baptist Church). You may want to check with those churches.
