Can anyone shed some light on a Dawson Family cemetery in Onslow County. Rober Wilder Dawson married into my Wooten family-he married a Susan Ann Wooten-she died in 1919 and her death certificate states she was buried in "The Family Cemetery". Hope someone can lead me in the right direction. You can post message here or contact me directly at jbk6397@bellsouth.net.

Sincerely,
Brady Wooten Kerr

The Robert W. Dawson cemetery is located behind the Hillcrest Mobile Home Park off State Road #1257 in Onslow County. The cemetery is a ways back in the woods and is difficult to find. In 1990, John Baker of Baker Repair Shop was my guide. There are over 20 graves in this cemetery; however, only 12 stone markers legible.

A follow up to my earlier post": Mr. John Baker, my guide in 1990, resides at 123 Denise Drive, Jacksonville, NC 28540. His phone number is 910-347-7026. He is around 75 yrs old now.

Also, Susan Ann Wooten Dawson died in 1916, not 1919. this is verified by her death certificate and her gravemarker.

Do you know of anyone who could get out to this cemetery and at least document those buried there and it would be wonderful if someone could take pictures of the headstones that are still readable.

I surveyed the cemetery with Mr. Baker in 1989. The results are in my book Onslow County Cemetery Records, Southwest Township, Volume 4 by James Michael Whaley. Cemetery survey is on pages 60-61.
