Cemetery on Curry land in Lincoln Co

It would really help if someone knew the location of this cemetery, on the land left to William Curry by his father Thomas' will:

By this testamentary instrument the maker of it appointed two of his sons, James and William, his executors; and to William he devised the old home-place in "The Dark Corner," whereon was located the family graveyard.

Does anyone know the location of "The Dark Corner"? I've not been able to find any of the Curry burials so it appears the ones we are looking for in Lincoln Co are somewhere on that property.

What I've found so far regarding Thomas Curry's land:

1787 Thomas Curry received a headright grant of 200 acres on Gray's Creek

1790 Thomas Curry bought 200 acres on Cherokee Creek (Deedbook A, 155-6)

1793 Thomas Curry witnessed a deed conveying 200 acres on Cherokee Creek to Samuel Thompson (Deed Book E, pp/ 218-220). Also land on Soap Creek.

1795 Thomas Curry is shown in the tax records of Wilkes County as owning (in 1795) 500 acres of land on Cherokee Creek. This property was transferred in 1796 to Lincoln County. Another landowner shown in the records of the area was a J. Fountain.
