Are You My Cousin?: Tombstone Tuesday - Old White Family Cemetery

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

Tombstone Tuesday - Old White Family Cemetery

*I was granted permission by the photographer and the webmaster of to post these photographs on my blog.

These are photographs of an Old White Cemetery in Surry County, NC.  The cemetery is located off Brindle Road near Dobson, NC.  It is on private property and considered abandoned According to, most of the stones are are field stones.  Other unmarked graves are thought to be there as well.

I do not know if this is my White family line I have been researching. (I am working with another White family researcher to untangle the Whites of Surry County, NC.) Given the area of the Surry County where this cemetery is located and its age, I would not be surprised if this is the site of some of the my earlier White generation(s). I admit, that could be wishful thinking!

If you are a White family researcher and know more about this abandoned cemetery or the Whites of Surry County, NC , please contact me.
