|Daniel Chadwick Willis house|
Daniel Chadwick Willis was the father of Augustine Willis, the husband of my great aunt. Daniel lived all his life in the Smyrna area of Carteret County, North Carolina. When he died in 1887 he was buried on his property in a family plot which is now on Hill Road. His was the first grave or at least the oldest one that has a marker. His wife, Lydia Dixon Willis followed a year later.
Unfortunately the small plot got a lot of use over the next few years as Daniel's children and grandchildren filled it out. The last person buried there was his namesake, Daniel, Jr. in 1930. I don't know when the family plot got a name but it is now known as the Daniel Chadwick Willis Family Cemetery.
I wasn't able to find any photos of the cemetery online but did locate this picture of Daniel's house that was built in 1880.
