Notes

Notes in "Remarks" column were provided by Lois B. Bowman and Zada Haney Lam. In 1981 Lois B. Bowman noted "Cemetery is on part of John Haney's farm and he allowed neighbors to bury there. Located in Greene County. Cemetery is overgrown with many unmarked sunken graves, many illegible metal markers, faded paper under glass, and all is enclosed by an old woven wire fence. Some metal markers are from the Prentice (?) Funeral Home, Charlottesville, Virginia."
