Gragg Cemetery
Meat Camp
Watauga County
North Carolina

Gragg Cemetery is located on a hill in the middle of a cow pasture behind a little dairy farm on Clay Hodges Road near the intersection of Herbert Jones Road. This area of Watauga County is called Meat Camp. The GPS coordinates are 36 14 57 N and 81 38 07 W.

The four wheel drive on my truck came in handy because of the rough terrain leading up to the cemetery. The view of the surrounding valley from the cemetery is excellent. The cemetery is fenced within the pasture. Because this is a working farm, care must be taken to close all gates that you open to reach the cemetery.

The ownership of the cemetery is unknown. The cemetery is in pretty good shape with some minor damage caused by the elements. The earliest burial appears to be that of Dillard Burton Hodges in 1875. The last burial appears to be in 1984. This is a complete transcription of all legible stones in the cemetery. The transcription was completed on Oct 29, 2006. It was updated on Dec 30, 2010. (This cemetery was first posted on the website interment.net but it became impossible to update information on that site. They also refused to remove the cemetery from their site. This cemetery will continuously be updated on my website.)
