Dare Co., NC Cemeteries

Meekins - Herbert Cemetery (Rodanthe)

From Hwy. 12 in northern Rodanthe take Cross of Honor Way Rd. and go about 0.3 mile toward the sound, the cemetery will be on your left.  The cemetery is in a thick growth of bushes and trees and is surrounded by large vacation homes. The information on the four stones listed below was taken from Sacred To Their Memory by Lois Johnson Meekins & Amy Midgett Gamiel 2001 who surveyed it in 1992 when it was in the same deplorable condition.
