Dare Co., NC Cemeteries

Midgett Cemetery - Hwy. 12, Waves, NC

Can't see the cemetery?  Neither could I.  Here is a prime example of "progress" and why the work of recording cemeteries is so very important.  "Real" is a watersports mega-store.  It was built  about five years ago and right on the land where this little cemetery sits.  The photo shows the side of the building - the front being long enough to reach from highway almost to the sound.  The loading dock is on the far back on the side.  They throw all the empty cardboard boxes and garbage over the side and on top of the graves.  Boxes had to be moved in order to take the pictures.  There is an enormous tree engulfing the entire area and getting far enough away to get a good shot of the double stone was impossible.   You can't miss the store but you can sure miss this little cemetery!  Photographs were made April 30, 2013 by Candy L. Roth.
