Cemetery notes and/or description:
Located on private property. Permission to visit should be obtained in advance.

"Woodstock plantation was part of the original land holdings of Zebulon Lewis (ca.1736-1799), the second of that name but the first to settle in Brunswick County, Virginia. The present house and graveyard stand east of a branch of Shining Creek on United States Highway Number 1. Zebulon Lewis and his wife, Sandal Jackson, lived west of that little stream and were buried on their home tract in brick vaults visible for many years but which, after repeated searches, could not be located in the mid-1930's. The present house at Woodstock stands on the site of a much earlier dormer-windowed story-and-a-half frame structure erected by Benjamin Lewis (1763-1824) (only child of Zebulon) and his wife, Elizabeth Gray Edmunds (1771-1834). The burial ground at this place was first used in 1816 when Edwin Gray Lewis, one of Benjamin Lewis; sons was interred there."
