Cox Cemetery

This cemetery is located in the woods about 1.5 miles northeast of New Hope Baptist Church No. 2. Access is by logging road off County Rd. 7. The property is owned by Cameron Dodson and the road is gated. Cemetery would be almost impossible to find without a guide. A record was made by Mrs. Homer Nichols in February 1970. I visited the cemetery in February, 2010 but was unable to find many of the graves listed in the earlier record. Many unmarked graves were found marked with native rocks in what appeared to be family plots. The name for this cemetery comes from the 1970 survey. An African-American cemetery is at same location.
