Notes

Cemetery is well maintained with fence around it. It is on a hill overlooking the German River at Criders, Virginia. Facing headstones, rows are recorded starting as you enter the cemetery (front to back), and from right to left. Following notes are from Patricia Turner Ritchie: "Through tradition, Lewis Yankey's notes identified a number of burials for whom there are no carved markers. The cemetery association has recently marked those graves with concrete markers. The book, Brocks Gap Miscellaneous Research-by Lewis Yankey (page 13) states that on August 7, 1906, Israel Caplinger deeded the graveyard jointly to the trustees of three denominations: Israel Dove of the United Brethren Church, F. A. Yankey of the German Baptists (Dunkers, now Church of the Brethren), and Silas A. Dove of the Lutheran Church. It was to be free for all people to bury there, according to the deed." Notes in the 'Remarks' column were provided mainly by Lewis Yankey. The Blank White Stones with no writing on them--information was taken from Lewis Yankey's records.
