Flemming Family Cemetery (Under Lake Norman)

In 1960, the Flemming Family Cemetery, which would have been flooded by the waters of Lake Norman, was relocated from its original location to the Rehobeth United Methodist Church Cemetery in Sherrills Ford, NC. The cemetery contained six graves, all belonging to members of the Flemming family. By permission of family descendants, only gravestones were relocated. Gravestones ranged in date from 1814 – 1896.
