Search Wilkins Family Cemetery (Fort Pickett):

"This family cemetery was located just west of the intersection of Longstreet Road and Gills Bridge Road (Training Area 23) in what was Tract D-429 owned by Lynn Wilkins in 1944 (see Table 1 and Figure 1). It is marked as "relocated" on the 1944 map but not included on Godburn's list of cemeteries relocated to Butterwood Church (Godburn 1977: Appendix G). Although no specific connection to relocated burials at Gills Bridge Road can be made, it is quite possible that these graves were moved to that location. The exact location of this former cemetery has not been identified at the time of this survey."
