The De-weeding of Richard Spaight

Record #:
Recently, the gravesite of Richard Dobbs Spaight, Sr., was discovered. Spaight signed the U.S. Constitution and served as the first native-born North Carolina governor. He died in 1802, and his son, Richard, Jr., also served as governor and is buried in the same small cemetery as his father. The graveyard is located on Brice's Creek Road in New Bern, and the overgrowth has been cleared by a local Boy Scout Troop.
