|The glebe burying ground contains among its surviving components several late 18th-century stones rarely found in this area of Virginia. The two oldest grave markers are flat, horizontal slabs with head and footstones. Several similar markers|
have been found scattered throughout the Valley of Virginia and into Southwest Virginia. This type of memorial generally marks older graves of more pronlirient people, suggested here by the lengthy epitaphs inscribed on the horizontal slab. The style and decoration of these markers reflect the local German settlement.
