Currituck Co., NC Cemeteries

 Waterfield - Ballance Cemetery
Morse Point, Knotts Island, NC

Directions: Take Hwy. 615 (Marsh Causeway) north towards Virginia.  Take the first road to the left after crossing Marsh Rd. which is the same road that the Mackey Island Wildlife Office is on.  The cemetery will be on the right about .2 mile toward to office.  The cemetery is fenced and well kept but at some point in time it appears it may have been vandalized as most of the headstones are broken and there seems to be tire tracks or scuff marks on one or two of the stones.
