Yet Another…lost cemetery

Every once in a while we come across a cemetery with no known name or who was even laid to rest there. These cemeteries are the result of some of our earliest settlements and lack of materials to provide marked stones for the graves. I’ve known about this small cemetery for years. I was first shown the location by my Uncle and Grandfather during an early spring turkey hunt before the vegetation became too thick to find it. Once again, the location would be easier to point out on GPS rather than give step by step directions. It’s located in the National Forest in Augusta County about 75 feet off the side of the road. The North River runs on the opposite side of the road a few hundred yards away. As I said earlier, none of the stones are marked and there are no markers around the cemetery that I know of. The pictures tell the story much better than I can. Enjoy!
