Other_Information:

I found this cemetery because it was listed in a book (History of Dunn) I found in the State Archives Bldg doing research on my family. Thought maybe my grandmothers sister maybe buried there. Married name Wilkins. I was shocked to find it in downtown Dunn in such need of repair.
