Cemetery

 Cooks Creek Presbyterian Church Cemetery - Section1

Location

East of Mt. Clinton, Rockingham County, Virginia. From Harrisonburg, at corner of Route 42 (High Street) and Route 33 (West market Street), take Route 33 West 3.2 miles and turn right onto Route 701 (Cooks Creek Road). Go 1.5 miles to Route 726 (Mount Clinton Pike). Church and cemetery are located on the northwest corner of the junction 701 and 726.
 

Notes

The cemetery is well maintained. Section 1 is the old section located in front of the church and starts near the road and is recorded from left to right. Section 2 is located on the right side facing the church and is recorded starting near the road and from left to right towards the back of the church. In 1967 J. Robert Swank noted "There were many stones illegible (Note: referring to Section 1 and 2). Also many unmarked graves." Section 3 is the new area and is located across the road. The rows are recorded by starting in the far right corner from the church (southeast) to the west. Headstones are recorded from right to left (south to north). Section 4 is a list of burials recorded by the church but were not found in Section 1 or 2 by Mr. Swank in 1967 and not in 2002. Section 5 - Mr. Swank writes "The first meeting house of the Cooks Creek Congregation was located on 16 acres of land on Cooks Creek by a spring 1750 to 1780. A grave yard was located by the spring and church. This was later flooded by the construction of the dam to form Silver Lake at Dayton, Virginia. There were many buried here. There were probably a number of slaves buried here who were members of the congregation." Burials known to be in the Dayton grave yard are listed in this section. Family/relationship notes in "Remarks" column were furnished by Mr. Swank.
