|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Mt. Ead Cemetery is also known as "Greenville Negro Graveyard" and "Greenville Black Cemetery." The land for the cemetery was given by Isaac Newton. It was used by members of both the Mt. Ead and Wayman Chapel churches. Mt. Ead church is also known as "Greenville, Va., African Baptist Church." Mt. Ead church held services from about 1872 until about 1976. The church was torn down in December 1992. While both churches are no longer in service, many Blacks with family ties to former members continue to bury in this cemetery.
