Hello,
I found, what I think, is the Prices Creek Community Cemetery. It is off New Ground Road, which is off Prices Creek, in Yancey Co. There are about 40-50 fieldstones with no markings on them. There are some members of the Westall family buried directly in front of this cemetery. It is very overgrown, and looks to be have been abandon for many, many years. I was told that Barnett Blankenship, who died before 1880, is buried there. His wife, Ruthie Koon Blankenship, wanted to be buried there, but the cemetery was privately owned by then. One of the 4 or 5 neatly kept graves in front of the abandon cemetery, is Marion B. Westall, and his wife, Grace Holcombe Westall. I would love to know who might be buried in this cemetery, which seems to be at least 130 yaers old. Does anyone know ?
