Taylor Cemetery


The following directions were provided by Kevin Rankin who was attempting to help a researcher locate this cemetery.

This cemetery is located 3/4 of a mile directly west of Rockbridge. There is no real road that goes to it. It is in the middle of private property. It is about directly north of what are known as the Postel barns (Postel is a family name). The best way to get there is to head straight south out of Rockbridge on State Street. In 1/4 to 1/2 mile the road will "T" into another road, turn right (west). When this road makes a forced left, continue straight through the farm gate instead of making the forced left. Turn right (north) after the garage on the right, and then go around (through) the Postel barn complex. The cemetery is on the west side of the fence along the dirt road. This is just an old country cemetery that is VERY overgrown. I walked through it in October 1996, and what headstones I could find (maybe 10) were mostly knocked over in the weeds (about 3 feet high). There is no one with any further records.
