ZACK DUMAS CEMETERY
Surveyed by Woodford Sherrill and Jack Ingram
If approaching the stop light in Ellerbe from the south on #220, that you should make a left turn
at the stop light. (If coming from north, make right turn) Follow the road, without making turns,
all the way to #109 at Mangum. Turn left on #109, and go about one mile. Look on left and will see
chicken houses on hillside. A little distance further on beyond the chicken houses, there will be
an open field on the right. In that field will be a growth of bushes, vines, and trees that marks
the location of the cemetery.

*Died in Richmond County, N.C., on Saturday the 17th inst., Mr. Zachariah Dumas, in his 70th year.-Death upon this occasion has
done his work upon hoary age, and the deceased, after emphatically serving his age and generation, is "gathered to his fahters."
We are not again to look upon the like of Mr. Zachariah Dumas. He was the last of those time-honored and early settlers of this
part of the Pee Dee country. He was a man of sterling integrity and worth, combining firmness of character with great kindness of
heart; distinguished for his liberality, sociability, and hospitality. Few men have lived and died in this community more universally
and deservedly respected. In boyhood and youth and manhood, living and dying, he has enjoyed the confidence and affectionate regard of
all who have ever become acquainted with him. Could cympathy and tears and prayers have kept him in our midst, he had not fallen.
We desire to bow submissivly to the blow which crushes and overshwlms our spirits. God's will be done.
