Goshen Hill Cemetery
Cherry/Creswell, Washington Co, NC
Linda Haas Davenport
Coming from Cherry / Creswell on New Land Road. You will pass Mt. Hermon Methodist Church on your left. As you continue on down New Land Road you will pass a mobile home on your left and the cemetery is next to it. This cemetery is on land owned by James "Red" Davenport and is a Davenport family cemetery.
The graves are laid out parallel to the road in one row. There is a very large headstone with just the name Davenport on it and each of the individual gravestones are flat stones located at the foot of each grave.
I walked this cemetery July 16, 1988 and again in June 1999. The following is the information from 1988 and as soon as I can locate my information from 1999 I'll add it.
