McCoy Cemetery

Location

Elkton area, Rockingham County, Virginia. Cemetery is located at 3075 River Road (Route 635) at the end of a long lane, northwest of Elkton. Present owner of property is Ralph McCoy, Jr.
 

Notes

Cemetery is well maintained with fence around it. There are several rough stones unmarked. On 1 Feb 1937 C.C. Morris wrote the following up for the WPA Project: 3 miles south of Shenandoah, Virginia. It is a privately owned family burying ground in very good condition. This old graveyard has no highlights much that are of interest. It was started about 1855 by the McCoy family and has been the burying place of the McCoy family ever since. All of the markers to the older graves are of limestone, and have no inscriptions on them.
