Cemetery

 Garber-Raish Cemetery

Location

Harrisonburg, Rockingham County, Virginia. From downtown Harrisonburg, travel south on Route 42 to Hidden Creek Lane, which is next to the Rockingham Square shopping center. Turn right onto Hidden Creek Lane and go about 2/10 mile to end of road. Take lane just to left of fire hydrant at end of road. When you get to the gate, bear right, staying on lane and keep straight past high voltage wires. Park here and walk about 1/8 mile further, across some limestone ridges, and you will see the cemetery.
 

Notes

Headstones all face east and they are recorded by starting at the gate (which is on the west side) and then north to south. In April 2002, Deb Wake wrote: "This was the old cemetery for Garber's Church of the Brethren - possibly there was even an old structure nearby. If you follow the high power lines to Erickson Road, there is a Raish home. They possibly donated the land for the cemetery or they may have just been members of the congregation and buried in the church cemetery. The farm right behind the Garber's church of today, was owned at one time by Jacob Blosser, my great-grandfather. The family called it 'Moonglow Hill'"
