Notes

Refer to Linville Creek Church of the Brethren Cemetery Recordings. In Section 1 at the beginning of Row 20, there is a memorial that reads: "In Gratitude to the Church Fathers who dedicated this parcel of land for the burial of Black People- Marker placed by M. R. Zigler & S. D. Lindsay 1980." And in Section 1 at the beginning of Rows 15 & 16, J. Robert Swank noted there are 5 Negro graves. There were others said to be buried here-no markers. The caretaker of the cemetery does not have good records of early graves and the church uses J. Robert Swanks recording for it's records.
