Description

Ronnie Taylor, Director Phone: 910-347-4550/3570 FAX: 910-347-3570 Montford Point Cemetery was created in the early 1940s for the remains of white persons buried in the numerous community and family cemeteries that dotted the land acquired for Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in 1941-42. Among the graves are those of 32 Confederate Civil War Veterans, and Colonel Henry Rhodes who commanded the contingent of Onslow patriots who defeated the British in the Revolutionary War Battle of Moore's Creek. Several markers memorialize members of the Marine family, a surname which predated the coming of the Marine Corps to Onslow County by many years. As in Verona Loop Cemetery, many burials here are of persons unknown. Among those interred in the adjacent North Carolina Veterans' Cemetery is Sergeant Major Edgar R. Huff, who was, along with his brother-in-law, Sergeant Major Gilbert "Hashmark" Johnson, one of the first African-American Marines.
