Oakly Road Cemetery, Martin County, North Carolina

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

This is an African American Cemetery located on the Oakly Road. On left can see tombs, but investigated it was a large one that the forest had grown up. There were a lot of sunken places and graves not marked. Most of the people used Flanagan & Parker as the funeral home. Heavy forest debris I am sure covered some of the graves. Lot of thorn vines, but got as many as I could find. What a treasure!!
