The map shown is cira 1891. It was made after the last white Turrentines left this area, but it was the closest to the time period I found readily available.  With your eyes, follow  north along Mars Hills Road to where the Little River Church was and is located.  This is the Presbyterian Church were the early Turrentine's worshiped.  The cemetery is north and east between the old Mt. Tirzah and Durham roads on the original farm of Samuel Turrentine. It is almost on the Durham County line.
To find the cemetery today - GPS Coordinates: 36d 11m 13.0s N; 78d 57m 54.0s W   
Take Hwy 57 north out of Hillsborough, turn east on New Sharon Church Rd, then left on Poole Rd (SR #1536), then right on Hopkins Rd (SR #1537).  The cemetery is on the north side (left) of the road.  The cemetery's two brick pillars are visible.
