"Lacking evidence of a name, it will be referred to as the Douglas Cemetery of Laurinburg. To reach it: Travel Laurinburg's King Street to the intersection with B-pass N 401/501/15, from there continue westerly one mile on Old Sneads Grove Road State Road 1300 toward Sneads Grove and Marston. The cemetery is on the left side of the road. The trees and underbrush are high, all but hiding the tombstones. On April 6, 1976, the following tombstones were standing. Indications are that many other people were buried here but the stones have been stolen or destroyed or buried under debris." (Remarks by Bea Lane)

February 14, 1985: "Today I visited the Douglas Cemetery Bea Lane had given me 
information about from her 1976 visit. On this date, I found the same tombstones standing 
as she did.  However, I went through the trees to another small family type cemetery. This 
could also be part of the Douglas Cemetery. If so, then it would be assumed that the territory 
between the two sections was also burial ground and that it was a large cemetery with most 
tombstones now lost. In addition to the ones on Bea's list, the tombstones I found 
standing February 14, 1985:"(Remarks by Mary Chappell)
