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." Catherine McNeill     Posted March 24, 2004 by Myrtle Bridges
