I am a huge fan of the Images of America book series; I even collect them and have a Pinterest map to track the locations of the books I own. So, imagine my delight to see a new one dedicated to Plymouth!
The book is written by Willie Drye. Drye is a journalist and blogger who lives in Plymouth and collected numerous pictures to help tell the historical story of the area. I can’t wait to add this book to my collection! You can learn more about the book on the Arcadia Press website.
In the 1930’s and 1940’s, the workers of the Works Progress Administration (now called the Works Projects Administration) set out to record burial information for cemeteries across the state. These records have now been added online by the NC State Archives and State Library of NC.
The survey includes listings for the following cemeteries. Do keep in mind that there may be errors and/or mistakes.
- Baptist Cemetery (pg. 2)
- Brinkley Cemetery (pg. 3)
- Downing Cemetery (pg. 12)
- Episcopal Cemetery (pg. 4)
- Methodist Cemetery -pg. 8
- Windley Cemetery (pg. 11)
