 Trumbo Family Cemetery


Fulks Run, Rockingham County, Virginia. From Fulks Run Grocery on Highway 259, travel east about 1-1/2 miles toward Broadway. Cemetery is on the left side of road under a large cedar tree on Roger Turner's property.


Taken from J. Robert Swank's records done in 1967.  Swank noted "there is evidence of other graves here."  Notes in "Remarks"   column were taken from Patricia Turner Ritchie's book in 1999 & 2002.   Ritchie writes "The Trumbo family came to Brocks Gap in the 1740s.  This cemetery is on a 400 acre tract that the first Trumbo, Jacob Trumbo [I], bought; it is likely that he is buried here, but there is no marker.  The first recorded burial here was 1823."
