The Taylor Cemetery is located on top of the ridge on a fire road just off Rt. 626. This road goes between Trammel and Dante, Virginia over Trammel Gap. Directions to the cemetery from Trammel are as follows: Take road 626 to the top of Trammel Gap. When you reach the top of the ridge there will be a brick home on your right. About 100 yards past this house is a dirt road to your right. Follow this road about 100 yards and the Taylor Cemetery will be on your right. A resident of Dante informed us that this cemetery was known as the Taylor Cemetery. The cemetery is fairly well kept. However, at the time of our visit it was in need of mowing. Some stones were on the ground and other graves were marked with cement blocks that were buried flat with the ground. We counted 17 unmarked cement stones in this cemetery. The cemetery has a covered sheltered with benches and chairs. Just across the road from the Taylor Cemetery is the Trammell Gap Community Cemetery.
