|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The cemetery was called the Colonel Lewis Harvey Cemetery by the Roanoke County Historical Society. In past years it was known locally as the Speedwell and/or Taylor Cemetery. The cemetery was established between 1827 when the home "Speedwell" was built and 1842 the year Colonel Lewis Harvey died. The home "Speedwell" was owned by Lewis Harvey and later by Frederick Taylor. The cemetery is now fenced in & well cared for, and is on a hill behind where the house was, and still is in 2011, in the town of Starkey in Roanoke County.
