From the parking lot of Ravenrock Park in Lillington take the fishtraps trail about 1/4 mile, then
turn left onto Northington mill trail. It is maybe about 3/4 of a mile down the trail on the right (10
yards) into the woods. It is not easy to find. The headstone is a replica of the original (it was broken
and is in storage). There is a head stone and small foot stone. It reads: "Erected by Anne Northington
in memory of her husband Jesse Northington who departed this life December 31, 1827 Aged 63 years"
It is believed that Jesse Northington once owned a mill and a little store in the area, very near the Cape
Fear River. Mary Lou.
