I am not a big genealogy buff, but I live in Greensboro, North Carolina in Guilford County and walk to Hester Park on a regular basis. Today I discovered for the first time an overgrown cemetery beside the park, with a wrought iron gate with the message, "Col. James N. Millis and his wife Betsy Armfield Millis". Inside were graves from the mid 1800's to around 1902. There were Armfield's, Willis's, Ozment's, Haworth's and others. The cemetery has not been kept up and is full of saplings and fallen trees. Col. Willis' tombstone is missing and Elizabeth's is laying on the ground. There are a number of their children's graves in a row beside her tombstone, at least two of the children died in the same year: one suspects typhoid or something similar. A couple of the headstones bear the Mason's symbol.
