Dare Co., NC Cemeteries

Miller Cemetery (Avon)

This cemetery is located in Avon, North Carolina.  From Hwy. 12 in Avon take Harbor Rd. (SR 1224), and go about 0.5 mile.  Go a very short distance past C.C. Gray Road.  The cemetery will be on the left down a small unnamed lane.  There is a Gray Cemetery which abuts this Miller Cemetery with no apparent delineation between the two.  You can access the Gray Cemetery by walking through the Miller Cemetery.  Google Maps for these 2 cemeteries.

Information in brackets and cemetery directions are taken from Sacred to Their Memory by Lois Johnson Meekins and Amy Midgett Gamiel; 2001 or other records.  Photographs were taken by Candy Roth in January 2014.
