|Death: ||Feb. 2, 1846|
His is the oldest known gravesite in this cemetery. Per the website...
Greenlawn Cemetery opened in 1953 so we do not have any burials before that time. Actually I stand corrected, we do have one old burial for Captain John Lanier (an 18th century sea captain) who was born in Surry County, VA in 1763 and died on February 2, 1846. His burial site is in front of our office. Sydney Rivahrat1953@aol.com
