Th Plonk Family Cemetery

The Plonk Family Cemetery is about 200 years old. It is located just 0.3 miles from the original Plonk Family home place of Jacob Plunk II and his wife Christina Jane Kiser. It is on land acquired by the first Plonks to settle in North Carolina probably before 1766.

The 1790 United States Census suggests that Jacob Plunk I and his wife lived nearby, and thus could be buried here. Their son Jacob Plunk II and his wife Christina Jane Kiser are buried here. Their son Joseph Plunk and his wife Barbara Rudisill have inscribed gravestones. The land is along Indian Creek and has trees that have been untouched for many decades. It is an attractive place for families to visit.
