Anna Collier Barron, wife of William Nathaniel Gale Barron, was originally buried in Barron Cemetery near the intersection of Alt US 58 and State Road 709. When the new 4 lane was built, Anna and her husband's graves were moved to Glencoe Cemetery in Big Stone Gap, VA where they now have markers along with some others whose graves were moved there.
The Barron farm and property was in Lee County, Virginia, and was listed in the 1870 census there in Yocum Station Township and Jonesville, VA was the post office. If you have an Ancestry account you can see more details at this link: History of the Barron Family
