Cemeteries A-H

The Cemeteries of Old Guilford County, North Carolina
(Including Some That Are Now In Neighboring Counties)
Index of Cemeteries ~ “A” through “H”


Below are the names of cemeteries, any known information on locations, and a key to any published catalogs, which are detailed at the end of this page. It should be noted that sometimes people set up separate entries on Find-A-Grave (FAG) for the same church. Cemeteries known by more than one surname are listed under each surname in the cemetery’s name.  Cemeteries described in the published sources as “Unidentified Family” will be found under “U.”  

GCGS has published a series of cemetery surveys, and they are under copyright. It is not my intention to compete with GCGS – or with the Find-A-Grave or Cemetery Census websites.
