Grave Relocation Notice - Land formerly in Wake County located on Carpenter Pond Rd.

I found this in searching for a reliable way to check for cemeteries in peril. If you are also interested in checking for this information, the site allows searches for legal notices including grave relocation notices. You can search the state or by county. This is useful for me as I do not have a N&O subscription but still need access to this info. 

It is a little after publish date of this notice but worth a try to locate connected family. The land that the 17 unknown persons are buried on was formerly in Oak Grove Twp, Wake County and is now located in Durham. If you have Grady or possibly Emory family in that area that want to have more information, contact the email in the notice. Neither I, nor WCGS have any say in this matter. This is an alert to find family who may have questions or should at least know where the graves were relocated. As you can see in the map image below, large scale development of this land is likely imminent.
