The Parker Family Cemetery, also known as the Johnson/Parker Cemetery, is located on the east side of Hope Park Road south of Braddock Road (Route 620) in the Blevinstown area of Fairfax County. The cemetery is no longer accessible directly from Braddock Road due to the construction of the Fairfax County Parkway (Route 7100) which cuts through Hope Park Road. To reach the site, go south from Braddock on Blue Topaz Lane and turn right at the end of Blue Topaz onto an old paved but unmarked road near the mailbox for 5421. The cemetery is about 750 feet south of this intersection, near the former site of the Mount Zoar Baptist Church, which is now located on Braddock Road. The Greene Family Cemetery (q.v.) is nearby in the woods to the south.
Overgrown and unkempt, with evidence of at least 30 unmarked graves, the cemetery nevertheless shows signs of frequent visitors. Many of the graves are decorated with plastic flowers, crosses and wreaths. Many burials are marked with fieldstones and several with funeral home markers, a few of which can no longer be read. Some periwinkle is planted at the site and there is evidence of an old wire fence along the road. The cemetery was surveyed in 1976, 1988, 1991, 1994 and 1996.
This ½ acre cemetery contains only 8 formal gravemarkers, but there are several temporary funeral home markers and at least 30 unmarked burials present. Fieldstones mark some graves. The site is clean and well maintained, although tires and other debris have been dumped to the south.
