Solomon Hamm Cemetery
aka Laurel Valley Cemetery
Grayson County, Virginia
Location: Burton’s Chapel
Directions: From Flatridge Road (Rt 601) go east on Lost Lake Road (Rt 603) approximately 1.25 miles. The cemetery is not visible from the road but lies 0.12 mile north of the road in a wooded area. A private road leads past the cemetery but fallen limbs would prevent driving to the cemetery even if the property were not posted.
GPS Coordinates: N36.732159 W81.346138
Surveyed by: Rich and Ginger Ballard 10 Mar 2003
Comments: This cemetery needs maintenance. Some of the graves are badly sunken. One stone has fallen and another leans precariously. The area is considerably larger than the space needed to contain the identified graves. There are probably several others here underneath the ground pines.Rodney Johnson provided an earlier survey by Donna Edwards and Donna’s information has been incorporated into this list as well.
