Currituck Co., NC Cemeteries

 Walker-Scurr Cemetery
Listed in the 1936 WPA Cemetery Survey as the E.E. Walker Cemetery
Currituck, NC

Directions: This cemetery sits on the Wilson Snowden property and is about 170' west of Pilmoor Memorial United Methodist Church.  Google Maps for this cemetery.
Photographed:  In January 2012 by Judy Brickhouse and her daughter, Lisa Boswood, who said that there is a thick briar patch that some of the stones might have been hidden in, although they couldn't see any.  One stone was mashed against a tree and could not be read from any angle....this was the Elizabeth Scurr headstone You can still see bricks which were seen in a 1988 survey where there were 5 bricked unmarked graves.  WPA Records list Scurr as "Scarr".  In November 2013 Judy Brickhouse and her cousin, Brenda Merrell Laughinghouse, revisited this cemetery and discovered a few of these stones buried but were able to unearth them for photos.
