The following information is from the write-up from the Virginia W.P.A. Historical Inventory Project, Research made by William C. Sponaugle, February 5th, 1937:
"Description: It is a private burying ground on the old estate of the former owner, Elisha Betts. It has not been used for many years. A brick wall once surrounded the place, but little of it is left. Trees and undergrowth now cover the place.
Location: On Huntington Court Blvd. .5 miles east of Lee Highway #11 and 3 miles northeast of Roanoke, just east of the home of Mr. G. H. Clatterbaugh.
Inscription: Elisha Betts died March 14th, 1825, aged 62 years & 13 days. 'He was the poor man's friend, and a Father to the Fatherless. Blessed is he that considereth the poor. The Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.'"
