      overgrown one can't get into it. Outside possibility he was buried there
      instead of the Park. We are trying to get a picture of that cemetery online.

        Hi Jim
        Strong evidence-a map, a description of his burial ceremony, news articles, to name a few..point to his burial site at the Caswell Memorial in Kinston, NC., next to his daughter's grave. The expense involved would entail excavation of that one small area of the cemetery. I wouldn't think it would be prohibitive with today's technology. I don't know where the other governors of North Carolina are buried, but Caswell, as the first governor, a Major General in the Revolutionary War, and one who was relected to 6 separate terms, is particularly important. Sort of NC's George Washington.

        Clair,
         
        Raise a point and all you get is a lot more questions. .... LOL
         
        I support it, but lets not leave it up to the state to do all the work. Where was he buried??  Where is the governor's cemetery?? Was he buried in this cemetery?? And what kind of money are we talking about??  Is he the only lost governor??

        hello everyone
         
        Here is a letter I wrote to Gov. Hunt concerning Gov. Caswell, urging a search for his burial site and the cleanup and restoration of his cemetery plot. If any of you would like to drop me a one line note of agreement and support in this endeavor, I thought I would add the notes as an addendum to the letter. I plan to send it off tomorrow - thanks
        Clair
