Dallas,
I don't belong to Ancestry; am just taking advantage of this free trial. I have been to the cemetery you mentioned. I will forward an email to you which has all of the info from the tombstones. Happy to see that someone still knows about "Paris Creek", as that is named after my family. Do you have any info on the Paris'?

This cementery is located near the small Town of Pamlico, I think in
Craven Cty. My Mother and I visited it in the early 80s. It is off a
logging road and the area is extremely overgrown. We had an eldery
gentleman hack out a path with a machete. It's located on Broad Creek,
which ,I think is a tributary of the Neuse River.

I've arranged the list in order of death:

Thomas Carraway: 7/30/1773 - 1/9/1841
Rebecca Carraway, wife of Thomas: 3/4/1784 - 5/29/1865
Rebecca ,wife of Peter Nichols: 4/2/1850 in her 19th year
Daniel Smith Paris: 11/12/1848 - 8/16/1868
Susan Paris: 2/25/1878 - 10/2/1880
Charles S., son of Zadock and Elizabeth: 4/21/1871 - 8/21/1888
Paul C. Paris, son od Paul C. and D.B. Paris: 4/10/1890 - 11/1/1890
Debra B. Paris, wife of Paul Paris: 3/2/1860
Abbie V. Muse; 3/7/1888 - 10/27/1890
Zadock Paris: 8/13/26 - 4/17/1896
Salley A. E. Paris, daughter of Paul C. and Debra B. Paris - 1885 - 1897
John B. Paris, son of Zadock and Elizabeth Paris: 2/1/58 - 5/11/1902
Ralph Muse: 4/17/1901 - 4/22/1905
Louise Muse: 4/22/1901 - 10/23/1905
Barzilla Paris: 1852 - 1909 (married to Nancy Muse b.1851)
Zadock Paris: 5/2/25 - 5/21/1917
Mary Elizabeth Paris: 4/18/57-4/16/1922

I made a mistake about the cemetery being in Craven Cnty. I should have listed it as Pamlico Cnty--just got confused about which county to list it under, as the earlier deaths were when it was Craven Cnty.

I am glad that I was finally able to list this on Ancestry, although I may have done so years ago--

I have more info on the Paris, and Muse families, but will have to move a bunch of stuff to get to it.

I didn't know where the Carraway's resided, but Thomas could read and write, as he signed many legal papers concerning the Paris'. His wife, Rebecca, was a Paris.

I have never been able to figure out where the Paris' lived before coming to Pamlico. This is from memory, from my records: The first Paris that I found in Pamlico/Craven was a George. I think I found land records dating to 1757.

The TC that Lonne mentioned must have been the earlier TC and Rebecca Paris Carraway's son.

Back when I was really into genealogy there were no computers, and it was all "leg-work". There were MANY missed opportunities because when we found records where Paris was spelled with two "Rs", my mother would insist that they were not related to her family.

My email addess is: lynnegchase@aol.com
Thanks, Lynne
