LocationMt. Crawford, Rockingham County, Virginia. From downtown Harrisonburg, take Route 11 south to Mt. Crawford. In town turn right onto Route 867 (Old Bridgewater Road), go 1/10th mile & cemetery is on left side of road.
NotesCemetery recorded from front (street side) to back & left to right. In the southwest corner there are illegible broken stones. In 1934 John W. Wayland noted "A 'Northern' Methodist church used to stand here, but was removed years ago." In 1937 the WPA noted "One of the first grave yards located in this section. No special history only the resting place of some of the first settlers in this part of Virginia." In 1967 J. Robert Swank noted "Many stones broken & down and probably as many or more unmarked then those with markers." In 2002 we found cemetery well maintained & a lot of stones were repaired.
