Pitts Cemetery Transcription
From Pittsburg, go north on 64 Hwy to county road 306, just past the
Post Office. Go east on 306 then north on county road 311. Just past
the log cabin on the left, at the end of the woods and the edge of a
field, the cemetery is off the road under some trees.
Cemetery walked and transcribed by Johnna Quick in May 2004.
Note: On the obituary of Meekin Pitts, it notes that he was “buried
in the orchard under some plum trees on the old homestead.? This
apparently became Pitts Cemetery.

John Pitts, born in NC in 1753. John was a Revolutionary War soldier.
