Cemetery

Byerly Family Cemetery

Location

Pleasant Valley, Rockingham County, Virginia This old cemetery is located on Pleasant Valley Road (Route 679 /704). It is in a field on the Koontz Farm property near a silo across the road from the main house. January 2002 the road is being straightened and the cemetery will be on the right side of the road traveling East.
 

Notes

In 1975, Alan R. Shirkey found the cemetery in poor condition and it required a lot of digging and probing to get information. In January 2002 there were only 5 headstones visible and some footstones.
