Recorded and submitted by Jacquelyn McCray Nowell and Andrea Patrice Nowell
 


This is a cemetery listing for the former Cherry Chapel Baptist Church, Elm City, NC. It is located at 7946 East Langley Rd. (SR1003) in Wilson County, NC. The cemetery is located in the rear of the church parking lot. A single chain surrounds the cemetery to separate it from the churchyard. The cemetery was neatly mowed and in good condition. (The church building was sold and is now the Pleasant Hill Church of God. A new Cherry Chapel Baptist Church was built in another location about 3 years ago.)

The recording of the cemetery was done on Saturday, October 4, 2003 by Jacquelyn McCray Nowell and daughter, Andrea Patrice Nowell.
