This cemetery is located in a part of Wilson County
that was originally part of Edgecombe County.

Toisnot Church was established in 1756. A
meetinghouse 16x28 feet was built here on one acre
given by John Thomas and licensed by the Edgecombe
County Court on Sept. 24, 1759.
Many early members of Toisnot Baptist Church lie near
in unmarked graves. The Thomases continued to bury
here for a century after the church was moved in 1803.
It is also known as the Thomas Graveyard.
