Rife Family Cemetery

Location

Timberville area, Rockingham County, Virginia. From Court Square downtown Harrisonburg, take Route 11 North (N. Marin Street name changes to Valley Pike) and go 10.5 miles and turn left onto Route 259 (Mayland Road). Go 4.4 miles and go straight and this is where the Route changes to Route 42. Go 1.9 miles on Route 42 and turn right onto Route 617 (Church Street and name changes to Evergreen Valley Road). Go 1.2 miles and turn left onto Neighbors Lane (private lane). Lane turns to the right and ends by a house. Ask permission here to visit the cemetery which is just down the hill from the house.
 

Notes

Well maintained and enclosed by fence. In 1967 Mr. J. Robert Swank noted: There are many other graves unmarked.
