Gum Swamp Road Cemetery, Pitt County, North Carolina

Our thanks to Annette Ginn Roebuck for the contribution of this cemetery listing.

On Gum Swamp Road about 1.5 miles from the church on the right is a small fenced in cemetery. Before I found this cemetery, I pulled away from the church cemetery stopping at Gum Swamp Church Road. Should I turn left or right. Right would take me home. I didn’t know the territory to the left. I tried to turn right but a force turned me left and I connected with these wonderful people. Husbands and wives that loved each other only to lose a beloved wife to complications of childbirth and a few weeks, months lose the beloved babe. Marry a second time to fill a void. I can’t let the souls be lost to modern farming equipment. May they never stop connecting with me. I will search for them as long as I feel their presence as I walk cold dusty fields when I see a group of trees or a space that looks like someone is there. I will go, listen to the words on grave markers as they tell me their secrets.. and share them with you. Don’t you feel that tingling? They’re connecting with you, too….
