Trammel Gap Community Cemetery

Trammel Gap Community Cemetery is located on top of the ridge on a fire road just off 626 the road that goes between Trammel and Dante, Virginia over Trammel Gap. (The Cemetery is on the County line of Russell County and Dickenson County.) The cemetery was surveyed on October 1, 2000. This cemetery is also known as Mountain Cemetery and Comptonís Cemetery. This cemetery is in poor shape; however, just recently a group of men from Dante removed the brush and cleared the cemetery. There are very few markers in the cemetery; however, you can see depressions of a number of unmarked graves. My cousin who grew up in Dante told me that when he was a child he remembers visiting the cemetery. He recalls that it was covered with wooden crosses placed at the graves (this would have been in the 1950ís). The Clinchfield Coal Company buried their employees and family members in this cemetery.

Just across the fire road from the Trammell Gap Community Cemetery is the Taylor Cemetery. This cemetery has a covered area with chairs and is in fair condition. The Taylor Cemetery contains the following surnames: AMBURGEY, BROOKS, COMPTON, DINGUS, HOLLBROOK, JOHNSON, MEAD, SALYER, AND TAYLOR.
