Drewry Hill Cemetery

Lenoir County, NC

Surveyed by Catherine Harrison December 2009

The following is a complete listing of the tombstones in the Drewry Hill Cemetery in Lenoir County, NC.

Location On SR1542 (now Cecil Hill Road) near Wheat Swamp in Lenoir County, North Carolina. Turn from SR1541 onto SR1542 and it's about 1/2 mile up into the field. The cemetery is in the middle of a field with no direct access so you'll have to walk across the field. Whenever there are crops in the field, you are not able to see the cemetery at all. There are many other stones that are broken and/or missing or are too old to read. I'd guess there were at least 5-7 other graves besides what is listed.
