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.
