George, I have a picture. I will send it to your email. I tried to upload, but I don't know that it worked.

George, what you are doing is great! Thank you. Is there anyway in the details you could put that in O.E. Pilson's book it is cemetery #50. I think when Mr. Pilson was doing his research, the cemetery did not have a sign, hence the name Blackard, and when the book came out, my great aunt installed the sign to clarify things.

|Kristen Kennedy||RE: These are all on the same street|
Big A Cemetery and Blackard cemetery are the same.
Big A Christ Church Cemetery and High Point Church Cemetery are down the street.
|Kristen Kennedy||Big A/Blackard Cemetry|
At one time the cemetery was Blackard cemetery because it was on the Blackard land. Later it was renamed Big A (after Aaron Blackard)
Thomas Rorrer Jr. who created Aaron and Mary Jane Blackard used a book of O.E. Pillion's.
I hope this straightens things up.
Both J Via and Jessica Hatcher Jones message me concerning the 2 cemeteries.

These 2 cemeteries are one. The name is Big A Cemetery
|Kristen Kennedy||Blackard and Big A Cemeteries|
I think the Blackard Cemetery, once a cemetery was private in Patrick County, Virginia. It's name was change to Big A Cemetery .
Can you check if these 2 cemeteries are the same.
Deborah Wood daughter took a pic of the name of Big A Cemetery and put it on the memorial of Aaron Blackard and Mary J. Aaron is bury in Blackard cemetery.
To me, its look like the cemetery name been changed.
