Dare Co., NC Cemeteries

Meekins Cemetery (Rodanthe)

In Rodanthe go 0.7 mile north of Holiday Blvd.  The cemetery is about 300' from the road on the sound side and just north of Island Convenience Store.  Photographs were taken in November 2013 by Candy Roth.  In 1995 when Lois Meekins & Amy Gamiel were surveying cemeteries for their book Sacred to Their Memory, this cemetery was said to be clear of large overgrowth but in the last 3 years the cemetery has been completely overwashed with sand, large scrub has grown up and many stones appear to be broken or down.  In 1995 there were about 17 tombstones here but only 3 stones could be seen enough to take pictures in 2013.  Information in brackets is taken from the cemetery book.
