"This family cemetery is located approximately 250 to 300 meters north of Ridge Road and north of Utility Road on property owned by Virginia Tech. This location is overgrown, but identifiable as 25-30 east-west oriented grave depressions (Tyrer and Laird 2003:17; Plate 16). The cemetery measured approximately 60 by 60 meters and has no fence enclosure or grave markers. It was recorded by the James River Institute for Archaeology, Inc. during an archaeological survey of the area in 2002 (Tyrer and Laird 2003). James River recommended the site be considered not eligible to the National Register of Historic Places but that the cemetery should be avoided and protected from all ground disturbing activities (Tyrer and Laird 2003). The current survey identified only 12 to 15 depressions (oriented east/west, northeast/southwest, and northwest/southeast) within an area measuring approximately 160 by 60 meters."
"This cemetery (Cemetery B) is one of two marked as "relocated" in Tract G-155 owned
by Fannie W. Powell et al. on the 1944 Real Estate Property Map (see Fannie Powell Cemetery, Table 1 and Figure 1). Godburn's list of graves moved to Butterwood Church notes that 23 individuals from the "Farley" cemetery in this tract were relocated: Mr. J.H.
Farley, Mrs. M.T. Farley and 21 Unknown individuals (Godburn 1977: G-9). However, the list does not specify which of the two cemeteries in this tract was named "Farley.""
