Dare Co., NC Cemeteries

Wallace Gray Cemetery (Avon)

From Hwy. 12 approximately 3 miles north of Avon, go in at the entrance of Little Kinnakeet Life Saving Station.  Go left in front of the station to the south side and then left 0.7 mile down a lane.  Then walk about 200 ft. southwest through a foot path.  The cemetery is in a wooded area.  The 5 grave markers have been placed in a row when they were moved from the Pamlico Sound area, which was to the west of where the grave markers are now located.  The grave markers were said to have been moved to the present location in the 1960s.  This cemetery was reached by 4-wheel drive vehicle in 1994.  Photos were taken by Dawn Taylor in 2011.
