Newton Cemetery
New Hanover County, North Carolina

Surveyed by Michael & Judy Chesson June 2007
Directions: Take Hwy 421 South from Wilmington to Carolina Beach, NC. When you cross the bridge, turn right on Dow Road. Go 2.2 miles and you will see the sign for “Federal Point United Methodist Church Cemetery”. The path is big enough for a car to pass, but the gate remains locked. It is allowed to walk back to the site. You will come to the Federal Point cemetery first. The Newton site is  beside the other. You will see the National Historic Signs at the entrance to the cemetery.  The site is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places Dated 13, Mar 1997.

Sweet little Johnnie lies on
The grave where we no
Longer behold thee
No tread the rough paths
Of this world by out side
But the wide arms of mercy
Are spread to enfold thee
And sinners may hope since
The sinless has died

Confederate Flag Flying on grave
That one loved form now cold and dead
Each mournful thought employs,
We weep our earthly comforts fled
And withered all our joys

Dear Friends weep not for me
Nor spend your tears in vain
For your great loss is my eternal gain
