Search Jarvis Cemetery:

This small colonial cemetery is near the end of Jarvis Point Lane in Schley, Ware Neck, Gloucester County, Virginia. It is also known as Jarvis Farm Cemetery. There are 3 graves enclosed by a low protective fence for Mary Booth, d. 1723, Thomas Booth, d. 1736, and John Booth, d. 1748.

Visitors should treat this cemetery as private property and behave accordingly.

Thomas Booth, who had been managing the lands of Robert Bristow on Ware Neck since about 1700, was collecting his own land in the area and acquired the Boswell homestead about 1716 and built his own home facing the Ware River. The property was sold off by the heirs in the years after the Revolutionary War, and changed hands several times before George R. C. Jarvis bought it in 1855.
