Dare Co., NC Cemeteries

Gaskins Cemetery (Hatteras)

This small cemetery is located in Hatteras, Dare County, North Carolina.   From Hwy. 12 in Hatteras, take Kohler Rd. (SR 1237) and go about 0.4 mile.  The cemetery will be on the right in a small wooded area about 50 feet from the road.  Many of these stones can hardly be read even with the naked eye.  Photographed in November 2013 by Candy Roth.   Google Maps to find this cemetery.
