Dixon-Barrett Cemetery

Greene County, NC

Surveyed by Liz Sparrow 2007

The following is a incomplete listing of the tombstones in the Dixon-Barrett Cemetery in Greene County, NC.

Location on Hwy. 258 very close to the Pitt-Greene County line, on the right side as you're leaving Farmville and going towards Snow Hill

Some headstones have been lost due to time. We need to probe the ground and see if we can dig up the ones that have sunk into the ground.

Note from Liz: Also, you probably should say that my listing is incomplete since I know from looking at these earlier surveys (especially the WPA one) that there were at least 26 people buried there, including these family names: Barrett, Dixon, Harris, Bynum, Dupree, and Lang
