Perdue Cemetery, Mullens

The cemetery is on the left hillside, across from a power plant, Rt. 10S, 9 miles from Pineville High School towards Mullens. The cemetery is visible only with careful attention proceeding towards Mullens, easier spotted coming from Mullens. There is no road, only a small clearing at the base of the hill, however, there is a deep ditch to cross with limited visibility re-entering the highway. Parking across the road would be far safer.

Notes:

  1. There are quite a few graves marked only with fieldstones.
  2. This is a difficult cemetery to record, with many funeral home markers easily missed, numerous gravesites enclosed, making motivation around the erratic layout a challenge. Briars, tangled scrubby overgrowth over much of the area add to the difficulty.

Recorded by Peggy L. Blackburn, 4 February 1999.
