While researching my Edmundson line, I came across a listing of tombstones in a small family plot in Stantonsburg Township, Wilson County, NC and thought this information might be useful to some here. It is called the Wright-Edmundson Cemetery. The listing is included in the book "Wilson County NC Cemeteries - Vol III" published by the Wilson County Genealogical Society, Wilson, NC in 1995. There is a copy in the Wilson Public Library, Wilson, NC.

There are 15 people buried in this small plot. Of them, 5 are Edmundsons ....

Mrs. Caroline Edmundson "Wife of R. W. Edmundson, and daughter of Hillory & Esther Wilder" "Aged 37 years" "She died in full triumph of faith."

R. W. Edmundson b. ?? (stone is broken here) d. MAR 1881

Susan Edmundson d. 21 FEB 1872 "Departed this life... Aged 82 years 8 mons." "Blessed are they which die in the Lord; their works do follow them."

Wright Edmundson b. 20 JUN 1796 d. 24 DEC 1860

Zillah Edmundson b. 01 APR 1833 d. 02 AUG 1895 "Aged 62 yrs. 4 mos. 1 day" " She is not dead but sleepeth"

The other surnames in this small plot are BATTS, BREWER, QUALLES, QUARLES AND ROUNTREE.

I have figured out the relationships of those people to the Edmundson's if anyone is interested....
