Currituck Co., NC Cemeteries

J. W. Forbes Cemetery
Powells Point, NC

Directions: From US 158 southbound at Fox Knoll Commerce Park make a left onto "Pvt. Fox Knoll Dr.", go to the end of the road and make a left onto "Chase Dr." [dirt road].  On the left appears to be the backside of a nursery and you will see a chain linked fence.  At the beginning of the chain linked fence, make a right onto the dirt field road.  At the "Y" when the road goes off to the left or right, the cemetery is dead ahead in the clump of woods and brush.  At the "Y" take the path to the right until the clump of woods and brush are on your left and proceed directly to it.  Although the cemetery is on the south side, mostly the southwest side, the easiest way to gain access is from the east side about mid way of the woods and brush.
