Wake County Genealogical Society, North Carolina
Buckhorn Township
Includes cemeteries displaced by the Jordan Lake Reservoir project and Shearon Harris Nuclear Plant.
 
Within each township, find File 01 and read that first. There are important tips that are standard to the project and township specific exceptions are noted. Take notice of the names mentioned in the miscellaneous folder which could not be placed otherwise. Please note OCR was attempted, but due to the predominate use of handwriting and old manual typewriters, very little OCR was achieved. Dust off those search skills.
 
Please note: several family cemeteries in this township where moved as a result of construction of the Shearon Harris nuclear plant and reservoir. Graves were moved to Bethel Church and Shady Grove Church, both in Buckhorn Township; and to Collins Grove Church in Holly Springs Township.  Be sure to check those church files in case a marker was placed with the move.
 
Future updates - Be sure to check out the township level indexes updates with GPS and online cemetery links when available.

This should be one of the first files you read. The New Index Spreadsheet for Buckhorn township allows for updates and corrections as well as the opportunity to add GPS Co-ordinates and links to outside sources. We have also improved how the roads are referenced by including Road Name with the SR#. -- We now have a vehicle to make additions as other cemeteries become known as is the wish of the co-ordinator of the original project, Irene Kittinger. If you know of any additions or corrections please let us know.
