COLYER CEMETERY
Township: O'Neals, Johnston County
Known Graves: 10
Births: 1860 - 1913
Deaths: 1904 - 1948
Surnames: Batten, Bunn, Colyer, Elwood, Godwin
Location: 35.638429,-78.218783
Directions: 800 yards down a path in front of Bethany Church on Old Beulah Road (SR1934), just north of Shoeheel. Nine marked graves, 13 marked with field stones.
Comments: Elder JT (Colyer) Collier's father, Elwood Colyer, and his two wives are said to be buried there. Outside the perimeter of the cemetery fence a stone was found with carvings on it that are illegible. It is a stone that is similar to those found in cemeteries of the day, so it has been placed near the entrance of the cemetery for safekeeping in hopes that one day more information will be uncovered about its origin.
