Andrew Funk Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: East of Elk Creek


GPS Coordinates: N36.71892 W81.12548

Surveyed by: Scott Trent and Richard Ballard, 19 March 2004.

Comments: This cemetery lies on a hill in a pasture approximately 100 yards from the road. It is surrounded by a white concrete wall topped by red tile and is barely visible from the road due to the growth of small trees and shrubs. There is no gate into the cemetery; a stile once provided access but is now obscured by a large fallen tree. The entire surface of the walled area is covered by concrete. A bronze tablet, set in concrete, reads, “Funk Family Cemetery 1968. Sadly missed, in loving memory of each one”. There are probably several more graves here. Cemetery is approximately 20 ft across the rows, with 5 rows in use.
