Adney Gap Church Cemetery (partial)
Page 60 of the "Cemetery records of Franklin County, Virginia" lists 13 entries

From US 220 just north of the Roanoke/Floyd County line go east on 602 a few hundred feet into Franklin County (as you pass under the Blue Ridge Parkway), then continue on 602 about 1 1/8 mile. A small white wooden church, "Adney Gap Church", is on the left. The cemetery is on the hillside west of the church along Route 602. There is a driveway where you can park.
