Thought you might be interested in the following....Reply from Roanoke Library/Virginia Room in response to questioning of the Blue Ridge Cemeteries:
Thanks for bringing us this question. Given what you're finding, I can see why there's some confusion!
Our research indicates that there are really four cemeteries here:
1. Blue Ridge Baptist Church Cemetery, Botetourt County, VA
2. Blue Ridge Church of the Brethren Cemetery, Botetourt County, VA
3. Blue Ridge Memorial Gardens, Roanoke, VA (City of Roanoke)
4. Blue Ridge Baptist Church Cemetery, Vinton, VA (Roanoke County)
It looks like the cemetery pages in FindAGrave with maps are correct. The questionable one, then, would be the Bedford County cemetery. According to the multi-volume set of Bedford County Virginia Cemeteries we have here in the Virginia Room, one of the four internments listed in the Bedford County cemetery on FindAGrave are actually in the Roanoke County one (Charles Webber.) In the book "Some Bedford County, VA Cemeteries, Vol. II" the Roanoke County cemetery is described as "located at 2410 Hardy Rd., Vinton, on the Bedford-Roanoke County line." I'd suggest that could be the issue.

Thanks Scott. I did it that way so it wouldn't get lost.

I looked up his military records in the 27th Va. Inf. I could not find him. I did find Milton Belcher in the 25th Va. Cav. I believe that's him. No other M. Belcher exist in other Va. units. He is on my list as being buried at Oakwood. Thanks Scott for your time.

Scott, I know you real like the Civil War info I thought you might like this article I found. I have also sent it to the person maintaining the memorial.
From an article in The Northern Neck News 1923
David M. Wright shouldered his musket at the beginning of the War between the States and Gallantly followed the Stars and Bars through four long years of bloody conflict. It is fitting therefore that some comrade, who followed the same flag should pay humble tribute to his memory. He was one of the four Wright brothers living near Oldhams, in Westmoreland County, who went to the front in 1861, at the call of their mother State, and he, like the others of his name, did faithful and valiant service in the douse for which he fought. He enlisted for the War, was true to his colors all the way through did a soldiers full duty, shirked no danger and shared honors with the bravest of his command. The war over he took up the implements of peace and pursued it's path as a good citizen, true to every civic and Christian duty to the end of his long life. At the death of a kind brother and devoted sister with whom he resided, he became an inmate of the Soldiers Home at Richmond, where he lived for nearly a year and where he died on March 15, 1923, having reached the ripe old age of 85 years. David Wright was among the first to enlist in the Potomac Rifles, a crack military company raised in Cople District and which after being mustered into the Confederate Army, became on of the companies composing the 40th Reg. VA. Infantry, the war record of which Regiment was second to that of nine in the service. Of his Company, a very large one, but two of its members survive him, Henry Douglas and Dol Sanford. His funeral was a simple one, held in the chapel at the Home, after which his remains, under an escort of old comrades, were laid to rest in the soldiers plot in beautiful Hollywood cemetery; here under the shadows of the soldiers moment, the rippling waters of the James sing requiem to him as to the thousands of other Confederate soldiers sleeping there and awaiting the reveille of the last day.
"In our memory still he lives and will while love its tribute gives" A Comrade.

|JLB||RE: John H.Grove|
His obituary says he was buried at St. James and his wife's obituary says she was buried at St. James and there is a tombstone picture on her find a grave memorial. His wife's obituary states that her husband died in 1894. His obituary says he was only 62 when he died which means he would have been born in 1832. I at one time had tombstone pictures for St. James but lost them when my computer crashed. I would have gotten his birth date from there.

Hi Scott, I posted a photo of his marker to your memorial for this gentleman who is in the Stonewall Jackson Memorial Cemetery in Lexington.
|Dottie Meadows||William Valentine|
Would you mind to remove the photo of William Valentine burial, section 142 it is the wrong photo. He is buried in west Lot 137. Thank you so much.
