LEAK FAMILY CEMETERY
Surveyed by Woodford Sherrill and Jack Ingram
Approaching Rockingham from the North on U.S. #1, go passed the first traffic light (within the city limits) 
and turn right on Scotland Avenue. Stay on Scotland Ave. and go past three streets on right, namely Ann Street,
Carolina Drive, and Cumberland Circle. When you have driven l-2 mile from U.S. #1 a "Dead End" highway sign will 
be on your right. At this point, the cemetery will be visable. It is about 100 feet off Scotland Ave.

If approaching on Hwy #1 from the South at the First Methodist Church (in downtown Rockingham), Scotland Avenue 
will be the 5th street on the left. (Directions by R. Carol McLean)

The additional listings and remarks shown in RED are from the Historical Records Survey of North Carolina, 1937-1938 
by Mrs. Myrtle Porter Hamer.
