Etheridge Cemetery - Manteo

From Hwy. 64/264 in Manteo, take Fields Drive and go 0.1 mile.  To the left will be a small old asphalt roadway not used anymore by vehicles.  Walk about 200 feet down this road and then as the road turns to the right, go about 200 feet more.  The cemetery will be on the left about 75 feet in a wooded area.  The cemetery is grown up with briars and vines.  It has been vandalized at some point in time and some of the graves have been dug up.
