CONFEDERATE WOMAN'S HOME CEMETERY
Contributed by Mary Lee Boyer
July 14, 2002
This cemetery is located in Fayetteville off Fort Bragg Rd. Take Fort Bragg Road toward the downtown area
of Fayetteville. You will come to the Terry Sanford High School on your right. Go very slow past the school
and pull into the parking lot of the school by the athletic field. Staying in the parking lot drive along
the fence and you will see a dirt road that leads down behind the ball field. Take this road and pull down
behind the dugout and you will see two graveyards. The one in the bricked off area is of the Gee family of
The Confederate Womans Cemetery dates back to the 1800's. There used to be a Confederate Womans Home in the
open empty lot beside the school. There is a Historic marker there now in the vacant lot. The home was torn
down in the 1960's. There also used to be a Chapel that the ladies used but it was torn down in the 1980's
to make way for the school ball feild.
Many thanks to Kenneth Byrd of Cumberland and Harnett Counties for telling me of the cemeteries. Kenneth
lived in cumberland county in the area of the cemeteries as a small boy. Without his knowledge of the
cemeteries this page may have never been listed.
The Confederate Womans Cemetery with a brick column archway entrance is next to the Gee graveyard. You will
see there is a lot of overgrowth of poison and briars, but the stones are visiable. Mary Lee Boyer
At the entrance on the two brick column's there are plaques with inscriptions. I will list these frist. Some of
them have no dates, just memoriams.
In the center of the UDC cemetery is a stone that reads:
