Acorn Branch Cemetery

in the woods on the right at the end of John Morris Road. Take N. Kerr Ave. from Market Street or MLK to left on Morris Road to John Morris. Go to almost the end of John Morris-its very short and the cemetery is on the right in the woods. You can see the path in. Its at the end of the run way of the airport. New Hanover County Airport will eventually fence this area off and restrict access. Supposedly they will come to let you in when you ring in at a gate-if they are available.

beside the Bryan and Bohnam cemeteries on Shannon Dr. I have called it the Johnson Family cemetery because there are more Johnson’s there than any other name.

When you come to Myrtle Grove Loop Road, turn left. Follow this road for 3 miles and Shannon Drive will be on the right. The name of the development is called Shalamoor. Turn right onto Shannon drive and when the road turns 90 degrees to the left take the path straight. You can see the brick fence from the road and the cemeteries are directly behind that fence.
