Mims Cemetery, is in the Lakedale Twsp. of Massey Hill. Take Camden Rd. through Massey Hill until you come to a 
dead end. The Fayeteville Observer {newspaper} runs along the side of the road and the cemetery is on the left 
facing the Observer building. This Cemetery pre-dates the Civil War and is still in use today. There are many 
that are marked by field stones, and old hand written cement blocks that are worn and faded with time.

During the Great Flu Epidemic, my grandfather & his daughter..also my great aunt were buried here 
in unmarked graves (above).  I was given this information some 20 years ago by my great aunt Mrs. Dolly Tew (who 
lived on Branson St.).  She was close to 90 I guess but her mind was sound.  She and her sister Illa 
nursed the whole family during this sickness.  They are buried in the NE corner of the cemetery. Linda Guthrie

Hello Myrtle, My cousin and I visited Mims Cemetery in Fayetteville yesterday (11-6-2010) and have one addition. 

--Rober- (perhaps Robert)
The much beloved son of John and Mary Ellis
Who after a distressing illness of many years died
May 25, 1817
Aged 16 yrs 4 mos & 2 days.
This tombstone is unattached to any grave and is leaning against another tombstone.  It is the earliest in the cemetery.  
The next oldest is Thomas Gill – born Aug 1798 died May 16, 1862 in his 69 year

The third oldest is Winfield Pickett (my great great uncle) Pickett, Winifield   d. 4-14-1864 Age 18 Yrs. Co B NC   Troops CSA
His is the only Confederate grave buried there during the war.
 
I have continued my research.  I now believe the Mims Cemetery is located on what was once Ellis land.  Ellis lost the land 
and it was sold by John Huske to John Smith.  John Smith then sold 43 acres to Jonathan J. Prickett ( my great great grandfather ).  
Prickett and Gill were neighbors in 1860.  Prickett's daughter, Susan (Miss Sudie), sold the land to H.G. Hill.  Hill then sold it 
to Dwight Ashely ( President of the Hawthorn Silk Mill).  Ashley then transferred the land to Savoy Realty (a related company.)
 
Thanks for your help, 
Sid Pickett
