Search Colona Plot:

This small family plot rises out of a large cornfield between Piper Road and Rt 709, 0.2 miles SE (147°) from Horntown, VA on the Eastern Shore.

The land is owned by Dublin Farms (The Hickman's). They were very gracious in granting me permission to examine the gravesite. As a courtesy, stop by and ask before entering their land.

The only way to the plot is through the cornfield. Piper Rd. is unmaintained and sandy. Enter Piper Rd. from Fleming Rd. and drive about 0.1 mi SE. Take a left onto a "tire path" and drive about 0.07 mi NE. You will see the Colona stone rising out of the field (you can see it from Fleming Rd and 709 when the crops are still low).

There are three marked graves:

William C. Colona (1830-1911)
Mary A. Colona (1832-1920)
Etta H. (Colona) Pennewell (1878-1922)

William and Mary Colona's markers have been damaged over the years, presumably by tractors or mower blades.
