Griffin Cemetery - Manteo


The Coastland Times - Tuesday, April 5, 1983; pg. 10A

This cemetery is located by the Manteo High School baseball field.  The cemetery is well maintained and enclosed with a chain link fence.  Google Maps for directions.  Photographs were taken by Candy Roth in May 2014.  Some of these stones were covered in lichen and were difficult to read, if at all.  In that case, some information held in brackets is from In Memory Of by Lois Johnson Meekins & Amy Midgett Gamiel who surveyed this cemetery in 1992.
