Surnames: Ganges, Richards, Stephens, Thomas, Walker. Many others are listed in Burial Accounts, 1800-1877, T-E Historical Society burial lists. Other than Ganges, names listed here are founding families of Tredyffrin Township. L. Walker & descendants owned the property from wich the cemetery was donated, from late 1690\\\'s to 1939. Ganges (11 burials) are of the Ganges Africans group, brought to U.S. for slave trade, freed in 1800.
Other_Information: The cemetery contains too many burials to fit the currently demarcated site. There\\\'s strong evidence of burials outside the current walls. These are endangered by an impending Township zoning change that will allow high density housing on the site. This cemetery is one of the earliest that allowed African-American burials (there are over 70) and contains 300 Continental soldiers who died at Valley Friends Meeting during Washington\\\'s 1777-78 Winger Encampment at Valley Forge. Unless protected, the burials outside the maintained cemetery will probably destroyed.

COLONEL JOHN WHITAKER, Squire of Echo Manor Plantation, son of Robert (1718-1765) and Sarah Whitaker, was born 2 May, 1745, in that portion of Craven County that was cut off in 1746 to form Johnston, and cut off from Johnston in 1770, to form southeastern Wake County. \\\"Echo Manor Plantation House,\\\" where he was born, was built about 1743 on land granted to Robert Whitaker by George II. The grant, dated 23 May, 1741, describes 840 acres of land in Craven (now Wake) County on the north side of Swift Creek, a tributary of Neuse River and on both sides of Steep Hill Creek. The house located south of Raleigh, off Old Fayetteville Stage Road, is shown on Price-Strother 1808 Map of North Carolina as \\\"Col. Whitakers,\\\" and probably is the oldest house now standing on its original foundation in Wake County.

Colonel John Whitaker was active in the Militia when it was called out to duty in 1776, and along with Colonels Joel Lane, Theophilus Hunter, and John Hinton, he was active in establishing the Wake County Government. He served on the first governing body for Wake County after independence, and as justice of the court from 1777 to 1787.

Surnames: Unknown of all names. There is to be 18,000 plus people buried in this cemetery. Horrible conditions to get in and around inside it. Perimeter steel or iron fencing in horrble condition road ways somewhat untravelable. Alot of vandalism.
Other_Information: Parts of perimeter fencing missing or bent or torn down, roadways heaved up and untravelable by motor vehicle, stones and or markers damaged by vandals and some by ground errosion. Poor landscpaing duties to include mowing and weed eating. Unfinished blown down tree removal. Majority of the problem is vandals. Upon speaking with the woman who is to be runnning this place, she seems like she doesn\\\'t want to do anything more about the vandalism problem going on. I was told \\\" we have notfied police and that\\\'s about it\\\" I noticed 2 small benches tthat have new wood on them to sit on but the rest of the cemetery is in horrble shape. It does not look like any mo ies are being spent to take care of this palce or anything being done about the vandalism. Every time some calls this place, there is almost NOONE answering phones or returning phone call messages left on the answering machine.
Contacted: The Cemetery Office itself.
