Dare County Cemeteries

Midgett Cemetery - Buxton

This cemetery is located in Buxton, Dare County, North Carolina.   Going southwest on Hwy 12 in Buxton, go 1.5 miles from Crossway Rd. (SR 1234).  Take the lane on the left and the cemetery will be on the left soon after you enter the lane.  This cemetery is in a wooded area in a chain link fence about 150 feet from the edge of the lane.  Extra information is indicated in brackets.  Click on underlined names for a picture of the tombstone Photographs were taken by Tony Ianuario in 2008. This cemetery was revisited in February 2011 by Dawn Taylor & Angel Roller and it is quite obvious from the pictures they took that the cemetery has fallen into more disrepair than what was found in 2008. Upper photo taken in 2008 & lower photo taken by Dawn Taylor in 2011.  Google Maps for this cemetery.
