PHILLIPPI #1 - D13
This cemetery is on the Luther Phillippi farm south of Rural Retreat, on the
road to Cedar Springs. [Cameron -- this location is just before you get to the
dam for the Rural Retreat Lake. The old Phillippi home sits just off and on the
east side of the road in a sharp curve, and across the road and up on the hill
from the house is the cemetery. The exact location is unknown because there are
no markers and never have been according to Phillippi family members.] Isiaiah

The above private cemetery records were taken from the records of Mr. Frank
Repass Brown, of Rural Retreat, Virginia. They ARE NOT a complete listing of all
private cemeteries in Wythe County, VA.
These cemeteries were copied by Mr. Brown, beginning in the 1930's. The
compiler (Joe Cameron) has copied
the information exactly as stated by Mr. Brown unless a clarification was
needed, but these records have not been verified by Cameron. Mr. Brown, however,
was personally known by Cameron, and in his opinion, these records are as
accurate as can be possible.
The location descriptions for some of these cemeteries are not very clear -
some are even unknown to Cameron. It was felt, however, that Mr. Brown's words
should not be changed in any way. Time permitting, Mr. Cameron will later add
better descriptions of the cemetery locations.
