This study reports on a penetrometer survey of a small family cemetery near Stanfield, in Stanly County, North Carolina. The tract has been named by the proposed developer as the Nance Property, however, the bulk of the graves in the cemetery appear to be from the Moss family. The earliest known death date for the cemetery is 1862 while the most recent is dated 1911. This study provides recommendations for the removal of the cemetery, including additional historical research to identify family descendents, and excavation by forensic anthropologists to ensure the complete and dignified recovery of all human remains, coffin hardware, burial goods, and clothing remains. Additional recommendations are offered concerning reinterment, including replication of the existing cemetery and the use of individual graves.
