Rockingham County Virginia Tombstones by Cemetery

CemeteryMowbray Family Cemetery
LocationNorth of Elkton, from Harrisonburg go east on Route 33 to Elkton. In Elkton go left (north) on Route 340 (East Side Hwy). Turn right onto Route 607 (Red Brush Road) and go 1.1 mile to Moubray Lane, which is a gravel lane, and turn right. Pass the house and trailer on right and cemetery is straight ahead.
NotesIn January 2003, cemetery survey and following notes from Neil W. Mowbray, 16580 E. Spring Ave., Elkton, VA 22827, telephone 540-298-9968. There may be a row of burials in the very back of the cemetery right against the back fence, but no markers appear here. No living member of the family whom I have asked knows for sure if any burials are located in this section, but there is enough room for a row of graves. Fieldstones marking graves were moved to make mowing cemetery easier. Present owner (Jan. 2003) is Nina Alger Williams Rogers.
