To Don Stowe,
I'm really confused. I've been looking for the location of the Old Hope Moravian Cemetery and God's Acre and now believe they are one and the same. Do you know if they are? If not, do you know where Old Hope is located?
Regarding the location of God's Acre, are you referring to the cemetery that "appears on mapquest" to be about a block north of the Home Church and it looks like some of it is on the NE side of the parking lot? (I'm not anywhere near N.C. so mapquest is the best I can do to find the location of the cemetery.)
If that's the cemetery to which you are referring, it seems that God's Acre Cemetery is the Salem Cemetery. Is God's Acre part of the Salem Cemetery? Are they separate cemeteries? The aerial photo on mapquest shows that part of the Salem Cemetery has flat headstones (Moravian style) and part does not which leads me to believe that God's Acre is part of Salem Cemetery????
If God's Acre is not part of the Salem Cemetery, then I am assuming it is named "God's Acre Cemetery" but why doesn't it show up on lists of cemeteries in Forsyth Co?
And finally, do you know where I can find a list of those buried and where in the cemetery they lie? Is there a sexton or cemetery office?
I've read some of your posts on the forums and you seem to be very knowledgeable and helpful which is why I'm asking a rather confusing question --because I know you can handle it.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.
