"This family cemetery is located approximately 15 meters west of Range Road, south of Garnett Avenue in Fort Pickett's cantonment area. The cemetery is well maintained but not used and measures about 7 meters square (Plate 20). It is surrounded by a barbed wire fence in good condition. It was surveyed by Pamela Hurak as "Fort Pickett
Cemetery #5 (Pegram Road)" (Hurak 1996: 13)."

"There are 3 east-west oriented graves marked with marble and concrete headstones and 1 with a footstone. The earliest marked date is 187? and the latest is 1917. This cemetery was recorded and photographed in Godburn's 1977 Historic Properties Survey; the current wire fence has replaced a ‘page-wire' type fence that existed in 1977 (Godburn 1977:52) . MacCarthy also noted the existence of this cemetery in her Phase I Archaeological Survey of 12.3 ha (30.8 acres) Fort Pickett MTC Cantonment (MacCarthy 2003)."

"The cemetery may be associated with the remains of a late 19th/early 20th century farmstead/domestic structure located approximately 100-150 meters to the southeast.
This cemetery is not marked on the 1944 Property Map but would have been located in Tract G-227 owned by J.B. Morgan et ux. Neither Godburn's list of relocated graves nor the information from Gills Bridge Road Cemetery metal markers (see Table 5) record any burials from a Morgan Burial Plot or any other from this tract."
