Cemetery notes and/or description:
Located about 5.4 miles west of the town of Stanardsville. From that town, go west/northwest on Spotsville Trail / Highway 33, then turn left on Dyke Road / State Rd 810. Turn left on Lexington Way. and follow it up and back down a hairpin curve through the subdivision. The cemetery will be on your right, between Lexington Way street and the driveway for the house of the property owner. It looks like a small grove of trees and bramble bushes, the only non-landscaped area of the lawn. The cemetery space itself is in extremely poor condition, totally overgrown, and appears to have been used as a dumping ground for old pieces of metal and a tire. A low wall of cinderblocks at one time enclosed the cemetery, but the cinderblocks and at least some of the gravestones have fallen or broken. In April 2016 the dead branches and undergrowth appeared impassable, unless one brought a machete and high boots (in case of snakes) along with a camera with a good lens. Some gravestones had fallen off their pedestals. There are only 11 burials, the earliest three in the 1860s, and the most recent in 1941.
