Old Cooper Cemetery - Knotts Island

Old Cooper Cemetery - Knotts Island

Classification: Query
Surnames: Scott, Cooper, Ansell, Grimstead, Waterfield, Litchfield
This very overgrown cemetery contains over 60 graves. I was able to locate the grave of my great great grandfather, Samuel P. Scott (1830-1878) in 2009 in this cemetery. It is identified in the book, "Currituck County, NC Cemetery Records" as Location #18 off Hwy 615 back of the fire station. Some of the graves are Ansell, Cooper, Grimstead, Waterfield, Litchfield and others. Am interested in contacting the current property owner and have the overgrowth cleared. Anyone interested, please contact me.

I just found this thread. Is there a possibility that your Uncle would know if there is anyone in the cemetery with the surname "Sorey". Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for your quick reply. We were able to find the grave in question in an old cemetery off Taft Road in Chesapeake, VA. We found the headstone for Rufus B Sorey. No headstone for Ethel Sorey, but know that she was buried beside him.

According to the listing from "Currituck County, North Carolina Cemetery Records" book, there is no one with the first or last name Jefferson listed as being buried there. There are over 60 graves listed. However, having visited there multiple times, it is nearly inaccessible and very dense. It is entirely possible there are more graves, marked or unmarked.Do you have additional info on this person that might help?
