Notes for WILLIAM PINKNEY GREEN:
                       THE GREEN CEMETERY
                         Rutherford County, NC
                              By W. D. Floyd

To get to this small cemetery from Ellenboro, NC go west on US74 business but
donít cross the railroad just out Piney Mountain Road along side of the tracks
until you come to Piney Mountain Church on the left, about a mile.
Turn right in front of the church, onto Old Hollis Road, and go about 1.3
miles until you come to Ledford Road on the left turn and go out it until
you come to Cherry Creek Road on the right, turn on it and go a few hundred
feet and it turns to the right. Another hundred or so feet ti turns back to
the left. The cemetery is on the left in this turn.

Cherry Creek Road is just a dirt driveway to some mobile homes. You can also
go out Hollis Road and take a left on Wallís Church Road for less than a half
mile and then turn back to the left on Old Hollis Road and find Ledford Road.
I was at this cemetery September 25, 1997 and there is just one readable
marker and enough field stones for maybe three or four more graves.
