AN OLD McNAIR CEMETERY
Surveyed and contributed by Catherine McNeill
"As you go from Laurinburg to Aberdeen, it is on the left off the Highway about a half mile (guess) in an
area that used to be called Elmore. It used to be in an Oak grove. This was evidently a larger cemetery
than the listings would indicate, as many sunken places, indicating old graves, could be found. This is now
Scotland, but was Richmond when these people lived and died."
