Information on "the Old Stone Graveyard" was furnished by the Randolph County Historical Landmark Preservation Society in its 24 March 2010 minutes:

http://www.co.randolph.nc.us/hlpc/minutes/hlpc_minutes_032410.pdf

Mill Creek Friends Cemetery (Old Stone Graveyard): Mr. Whatley stated that the Old Stone Graveyard of Mill Creek Friends is located at the southeast corner of 1871 Mill Creek Road, Ramseur, NC and contains around 200 graves located on land that was originally part of a very large estate acquired through land grants and purchases by William Cox.

The Mill Creek Friends Cemetery has been called the Old Stone Graveyard because most of the graves are marked only with unlabeled markers or stones from the area. Many of the stones have been moved, not realizing they were grave markers.

Mill Creek Preparatory Meeting was established in “Cox’s Settlement” in the 1750s or 1760s, as an outgrowth of Cane Creek Friends Meeting in Orange (now Alamance) County. After the War of the Regulation and the Revolution when the area was under the control of David Fanning, the Mill Creek Meeting lapsed.

About 1790, a new group, Holly Spring Preparatory Meeting, was established and became an independent Friends Meeting. The Mill Creek cemetery was used until a cemetery was established at Holly Spring. It is still maintained by Holly Spring Meeting. This cemetery is the resting place for William Cox and many of his decedents.

On a motion of Dixon, seconded by Qualls, the Commission voted unanimously to place the Liberty Train Depot, Richland Lutheran Church Cemetery, Patterson Cottage, Parker Mill Bridge and Mill Creek Friends Cemetery on the Cultural Heritage Site list and to add these sites to the website under a Cultural Heritage Site tab.

[This would be: Mill Creek Friends Cemetery (Old Stone Graveyard), Ramseur, Randolph County, NC, USA]
