Notes

In 1967 J. Robert Swank noted "Markers were found for two of the above. Others may be buried here. Names of most were supplied from memory by Mr. S. M. Burnshire, custodian of Linville cemetery. Remarks of praise were heard from many who knew Mrs. Josephine Temple for her deeds of kindness to those of the section in time of sickness and need, and of her long service in the family of Dr. Graves. John Temple was sent to Harpers Ferry for an education by Senator Pennypacker. He was married twice, had a large family and sent them to the Harrisonburg school. All praise the family for their worth to the community." * Records show "this is a negro cemetery".
