Willowdale Cemetery, Goldsboro, NC - Located in the middle of the old part of the Cemetery is a very impressive marker to the UNKNOWN C0NFEDERATE DEAD, many of whom were killed in the Battle of Bentonville in the last days of the Civil War. Probably others were moved from old family plots to rest here in the shade of the old trees and the twittering of the birds and squirels. Much could be written about the lives of the people who lie so peacefully and quiet in this place. Wayne County Cemetery Book.
