Tombstone Tuesday- Cox family, Onslow County, N.C.

This grave marker is from the newest, and least researched, Caucasian endangered cemetery. Located on County property, officials were not aware of cemetery.

Visible headstones suggest this cemetery was established ca.1885.

This cemetery, along with the other two recently located cemeteries within this piece of County property will be Resurrection Mission's 2010, projects.

In total, fifteen cemeteries are being researched and cared for, on a staggered schedule, by Jack Robinson, historian and exclusive caretaker of these cemeteries.

Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to review this post,
