Located south east of Elon, in a cultivated field, on high ground. The fence is torn away, cattle have grazed over the place, and markers have fallen and broken. The Carrolls were early settlers in this region and Benjamin Carroll was a large land owner, the burial plot being on a part of his farm, but no longer belongs to the family. He married Sally Sinclair. He is known to have been buried here, his grave unmarked. There are traces of about 20 unmarked graves.
