Good news & bad news

In Reply to: Re: Rocky mount graveyard, Elswick S. Field, 1808-1867 by Sherry of 598

While I am not sure this is the same cemetery, I found a web site that has a picture of five graves that appear to be all that is left of it. I am guessing, and don't know for a fact, but it looks like the cemetery may have been flooded when Lake Hickory was built in 1927. The good news....for you...is that the five remaining graves all appear to be Sherrills....and the site where I found the picture appears to be an incredible resource on Sherrill family history!

The picture of the Rocky Mount graves are at:

And the main Sherrill web site is at:

I wrote to the fellow... I presume he's a cousin of yours... asking if he could tell me anything about the cemetery.

Well, I hope this helps you in your research...

Best Regards,

John
