Dare Co., NC Cemeteries

Cyrus King Hooper Cemetery - Avon, NC

Directions: From Hwy 12 in Avon take Harbor Rd. (SR 1224) and go about 0.2 of a mile, turn right on North End Rd. (SR 1229) and go about 0.5.  The cemetery will be on the left close to the road.   Photographs were made in April 2013 and posted here with kind permission by Candy L. Roth.  The graves closest to the road were clear but some graves at the back were very overgrown and some were not photographed.  Some of the stones could not be read without a close-up photo, and not even then on a few.  We have used Sacred To Their Memory by Lois Johnson Meekins and Amy Midgett Gamiel to figure out who some of these stones belong to.  The last survey date was March 1992.
