Note: "Rose Hill" Taliaferro Family Cemetery is on private property. For many years it was left unkept and run down until the present owners, with the assistance of the Manassas area Boy Scouts and the Sons of the American Revolution during the Spring of 2006, restored it as well as could be done. Many of the stones are no longer readable but about 14 still have visible markings. The current owners kindly allow visitation but by appointment only.
