Notes

Facing the cemetery from the street, SECTION 1 is to the left of the driveway and SECTION 2 is to the right of the driveway. Headstones were recorded from front to back and left to right in each section. The notes in the "Remarks" column were furnished by J. Robert Swank. In 1967 Mr. Swank noted "Others known to be buried in the old section (SE corner in the back) of the cemetery in unmarked graves. There are probably as many as one hundred unknown and unmarked graves. The cemetery was first the private burial plot of the Good Family. In 1826 Mrs. Frances Good expressed a desire to be buried at the location and shortly after, on Aug 26, 1826, she died and was the first person buried at the location. In 1855 at the time her son Henry sold the family farm to the Toflingers, he & his wife Elizabeth, deeded a half acre, surrounding the grave of his mother and others, to 3 trustees; Joseph Funk, Christian Burkholder & Henry Frank. No organized effort for the maintenance of the grounds was made until December 7, 1904. The original 1/2 acre plot is known as 'The old Section'." Excerpt from article in Harrisonburg, Va. Daily News-Record dated January 7, 1943: "Plans were discussed to beautify the cemetery by the removal of footstones & obsolete limestone markers in the 'old section' of the cemetery. A considerable area of the northwest section of the cemetery was used as a burying ground in Colonial days. Only limestone slabs without inscription, show the location of these graves. Board decided to remove these ancient markers & erect modern marble slabs showing that the section is occupied by unknown dead. (Note: marble slab was not visible in 2002.) A pioneer family named 'Good' donated the land & established the burying ground by their names & the date of founding are unknown to the Board."
