In 1941, the federal government purchased 10 acres of land in Villboro, Virginia from Mrs. Martha Ferguson Galloway Baylor to serve as a burial ground for the African-American graves exhumed from the area that would become Fort A.P. Hill. The cemetery was named Mount Lawn Cemetery. Graves were moved to the cemetery from St. Paul, Mt. Olive, Union Baptist, and Bethlehem Baptist church cemeteries, and other private burial grounds. Members of Mt. Dew church decided not to move their burials to the new cemetery.
