Nash Family Cemetery
Located just inside Mecklenburg County on the west side of Cleaton Rd. (Route 625), approx. 0.5 mi south of Canaan Church Rd. (Route 625), no more than 150 yd. off the road, in the rear/side yard of a small white house. These 3 stones, the only ones found, are enclosed by an ornate iron fence in an area approx. 12 ft x 10 ft. There is evidence of graves outside the small fenced area, but the number cannot be determined because it is too overgrown.
