Ward Cemetery
New Hanover County, North Carolina

Surveyed by Michael & Judy Chesson June 2007

Note from contributor: Although I found no record in the cemetery of a Ward, this is listed as the Ward Cemetery in the New Hanover County Library. The following are from either headstones or funeral home markers located there. The cemetery is quite grown over but is easily accessible. Some stones were buried and 2 were standing quite well but were unreadable. I have transposed them as they appeared on the headstones.
