Another Cheek Cemetery?

Another Cheek Cemetery?

Hi all,

I recently ordered the G.P. Stout map of Alleghany County. Garland P. Stoud has a historian who made some very interesting maps of NC counties.

There is a "Cheek Cemetery" on this map that I am not familiar with, located off Road 1114A (Hudson Road). I have created this Google map link that will show the approximate location (based on the G.P. Stout map)

Does anyone know if there is an old cemetery in this location and if so, what's it called if it's not called the Cheek Cemetery?

Thanks so much!
Rebecca

Rebecca,there are many inaccuracies in the map. The Alleghany County Library has a complete cemetery inventory that was done by the local genealogy society, and the library staff will look up things for people. I personally don't recall having seen a cemetery where the map shows one, but it might be far from the road as it seems to be on private land. Because I don't have time this week to help, I suggest 2 things:
1. Call head librarian Debbie Brewer at the Alleghany County Library at 336-372-5573.
2. Call the Alleghany County Register of Deeds at 336-372-4342. Also at the Alleghany County government website you can look at all the land etc. yourself. I think it's in the section called mapping.
