Grayson County, Virginia

Location: South of Independence.

Directions: From the junction of New River Parkway (US 21) and Main St (US 58) in Independence drive approximately 1.9 miles south on New River Parkway. This cemetery is on a hill just south of a two story white house on the east side of New River Parkway. Access is up a hillside that was newly planted in Christmas trees in 2005.

GPS Coordinates: N36.5960 W81.15479

Surveyed by: Rich Ballard, January 2005 and info from Paul Herndon’s files.

Comments: This cemetery is in sight of the highway but brush (and soon the Christmas trees) make it very difficult to see. This cemetery is fenced and well maintained.
