Cemetery notes and/or description:
The cemetery is in the back yard of Meadow Farm Estate, a gated residence. The current residents are descendants of the Taylors who originally owned the land. Visiting the cemetery can be arranged by calling the Orange County Historical Society at 540-672-5366, who will in turn contact the owner of the estate to see if you may visit. As of June 2012, Virginia Blossom, a Find A Grave member, has photographed and posted all 29 markers in this cemetery and documented their inscriptions in the photo captions, adding greatly to the Taylor family history. (Thanks to Diane Gravlee, Contributor #47083760.)

James Taylor II was granted 13,000 acres of land in what became Orange County. He built his home about 1722 and called it Bloomsbury. Following his death in 1729, Bloomsbury's vast holdings were divided among his children. George received Midland (now Yattan), James III received Bloomsbury, Erasmus received Greenfield and Zachary received Meadow Farm. It is here in the Taylor Family Cemetery on Meadow Farm where Zachary and his family and descendants are buried. Meadow Farm passed into the hands of other families over the years, but was last purchased by Mr. and Mrs. Jaquelin E. Taylor to bring it back into the Taylor family. The original Greek revival brick mansion was completed in 1855.
