Sessoms Cemetery

My wife’s ancestors are buried on the Mutt Mckoy Farm, which originally was the J. P. Morgan Farm.  — John Wilson

Directions from Aberdeen, NC:  Travel highway US #1 South, leaving Moore County, and go approximately 12 miles. There will be a factory on the left, which once was called Brown Molding, but now it is Mill Source M W Windows. Once you pass this factory, turn on the first dirt road on the left. This is called the Old Laurel Hill Road. Once on this road, you will be leaving Richmond County and entering Scotland County. Travel this dirt road quite a distance, until you run into the black top (paved road). Once you are on the paved road , you will come to a sharp curve. A double-wide trailer will be on the left side. The cemetery is in the curve on the right.  It is hard to see, because the vegetation has grown up so badly. The cemetery has many sunken graves and one headstone:

  • Eva Grant, daughter of Harley & Annie Grant, b. 3-20-1922, d. 6-24-1922.

There are approximately 10 to 15 other graves there with old unreadable funeral home markers and big rocks to mark the graves. There were several Sessoms with no stones, and there are some Grants with stones.
