The following is a complete listing of the tombstones in the Halls Creek Methodist Church Cemetery in Pasquotank County, NC.

Location: At the boat ramp on Halls Creek Rd across the street from Nixonton Ruritan Club. Signs of many more graves there that are unmarked. Very neglected.

There are a lot of signs of unmarked graves. This cemetery was larger at one time. Halls Creek Rd was built over half of the cemetery. The headstones were removed but the bodies were not unless they had family in the area.

In pictures 0101 & 0102 you will find the remains of two gravesites side by side that were covered in brick. They were approximately 6 to 8 feet long and were raised in an arched pattern. The other graves (picture 0105) which were once very noticible as indentations in the ground are not very noticible. The Ruitans must have leveled the lot out somewhat although I did find a low place or two when walking through the lot. None of these graves were marked to the best of my memory. NOTE: These will be the last 3 photos.
