SPRUCE PINE HOLLOW CEMETERY
NEAR CHANEY CREEK

LATITUDE/LONGITUDE
365704N 821302W (extrapolated from USGS Quad Map: Carbo, VA)

DIRECTIONS
From South Clinchfield, VA go South on Rt 615 for about 2 miles to the intersection of Chaney Creek Road (Rt 616). Up the hill and on the right just past Rt 616 is the cemetery around several large oak trees on the edge of the woods.

FIELD NOTES: 2/15/99
This cemetery is 1/2 in the woods and 1/2 in the open, and sort of steep. As the cemetery moves into the woods the neglect is stong. Started in SE corner.

FORMAT Note: Items in parenthesis are the best guess of the researcher. Items in brackets are my comments. A double stone is two people on one stone - usually husband and wife unless otherwise indicated.
