Donnell Farm Cemetery aka Greenhill Cemetery
[Also seen on some death certificates as "Donald Farm"]
(Swan Quarter, Hyde Co., NC)

This cemetery was surveyed March 2012 by Maldine Whitaker Wallace and her niece Beverly Merrick Mann. This, by no means, is a complete listing since this is a very large cemetery but if you have photos and more information concerning those buried here please let me know so I can include that information on this page.  Click on underlined names to see a photo of the tombstone.  Information within brackets was taken from birth or death certificates, obituaries, social security cards or other records.
