Dare Co., NC Cemeteries

Baum Cemetery - Kitty Hawk, NC

From Hwy. 158 take Kitty Hawk Village Rd. and go about 0.7 mile.  Turn left on Elijah Baum Rd. and go about 0.4 mile.  The cemetery will be on the left close to the road.  Some tombstones were too worn to read and other stones were partially buried.  In that case we've used Sacred To Their Memory by Lois Johnson Meekins & Amy Midgett Gamiel; 2001.  The WPA Records (pgs. 22-23) show that this cemetery was surveyed in 1938 as "Twiford's Cemetery".  Be very cautious when using these records--there are numerous errors in them.  Charles Hayman Aguirre surveyed it again in the 1980s and Lois & Amy surveyed it for their book in June 1993.  Photographs were taken by Patrick Patterson in August 2012.

The name was changed to the Society of Red Men after the War of 1812, and to the Improved Order of Red Men in 1834. They use some customs and symbols of Native Americans. Today they are a patriotic fraternal organization that promotes freedom, friendship and charity. In cemeteries you will usually see an Indian head symbol or an Eagle. The letters TOTE stand for Totem of the Eagle. The female auxiliary of the Red Men is called the Degree of Pocahontas, which was founded in 1885.]
