Currituck Co., NC Cemeteries

Morrisette / Baker Cemetery
, NC

Directions:  This cemetery was originally known as the Baker Cemetery.  No original tombstones are visible now.  Take U.S. 158 South [Carotoke Hwy.] until you see the Bank of Currituck and Mel's Diner on your right. Just before Mel's Diner, make a right onto Hickory Hill Rd. and go all the way to the end. At the end of Hickory Hill Rd. make a left onto Grandy Backwoods Rd. and then make a quick right onto Hunter's Ridge Rd. [this is a dirt lane].  The Memorial stone is just a few feet down this lane on private property.  [See more on the Baker / Morrisette family here.]
