Dare Co., NC Cemeteries

Zion Scarborough Cemetery - Avon, NC

From Hwy. 12 in Avon take Harbor Rd. and go about 0.4 mile.  The cemetery sits behind the old Avon Fire Department which is now used for storage.  A few of the graves were not found and some could not be read and, in that case, we've used Sacred To Their Memory by Lois Johnson Meekins & Amy Midgett Gamiel; 2001 who surveyed the cemetery in 1994.  Google Earth for this cemetery.   These photographs are compliments of Patrick Patterson who visited this cemetery in April 2012.
