I suspect this graveyard is in Augusta, Bath, Highland, or another neighboring county where Wileys are known to have lived (they lived in all of these). In "Early Western Augusta Pioneers", G.W. Cleek has the following passage: "James GILLESPIE served in the War of 1812, and there is a government marker at his grave in the John WILEY graveyard." There is no other mention of this graveyard in this book. The book "Augusta County Pioneers" says: "John WILEY, son of James WILEY and Agnes CRAWFORD, married Elizabeth GILLESPIE, daughter of James GILLESPIE who served in the War of 1812." So it looks like John WILEY was the son-in-law of James GILLESPIE, which explains why James is buried in John's graveyard. But where is it? And has anybody transcribed tombstone data from this graveyard?
