Viands Family Cemetery

Location

Runkles Gap Road, NW of Elkton, Rockingham County, Virginia.  From Harrisonburg, take Route 33 east to Route 602 (East Point Road), proceed north & turn left on Runkles Gap Road.   There is a small white church (Bibleway Church of God in Christ) on the right about 3/4 mile down the road.  Cemetery is behind the church yard. 

Notes

The cemetery is overgrown and there are very few stones remaining.   Notes in "Remarks" column were provided by Robert Crawford.  Robert Crawford on 27 March 2002 wrote:  "The land containing this cemetery was once know as the Kirby woodland pasture tract and was conveyed to S. M. Good who sold some land to Phillip Alger. On October 15, 1892, Phillip Alger sold a plot of land to my great grandparents, William K. and Rebecca Shiflet Crawford. On February 24, 1896, my great grandparents sold a plot to Luella Viands and December 28, 1898, another plot was sold to Clinton M. Viands. The cemetery was located on the Viands property.  Some land was later sold by one of the Viands to Mr. Cubbage who built the Bibleway Church of God about 25 years ago. All the burials in the Viands Cemetery were completed about 60 years before the church was built. There are some newer graves in the lawn of the church next to the Viands cemetery. This may be the church cemetery (Bibleway Church Cemetery).  One of the owners of the property removed all the fieldstones from the Viands cemetery."  Note:  The removed fieldstones are recorded on the cemetery list.
