 St. Johns Lutheran Church Cemetery


St. Johns Lutheran Church Cemetery

 

Location

Singers Glen, Rockingham County, Virginia. Two miles south of the community of Singers Glen on Route 613 (Singers Glen Road). The cemetery is on the east side of the road.
 

Notes

The church has been moved away but the cemetery remains. In 1967 J. Robert Swank noted, "There are many unmarked and unknown graves. There possibly are some Negroes buried here. The second church building, of log, had a gallery to accommodate the Negro worshipers of the community." The majority of the notes in the "Remarks" column were from J. Robert Swank's cemetery records.
