Notes2011-No attempt was made to record this cemetery. In 1960s J.Robert Swank wrote: Inclosed by a broken down iron fence. Livestock run. Most stones down. There are probably 40 or more graves in this space. Rev. Charles E. Nair wrote History of Northern Linville Creek in 1954. On page 37 he wrote: Jacob Rhodes probably purchased his farm of Thomas Dunkenson who was about to move to Kentucky. One or more of this Rhodes family were buried in the Hillyard graveyard near the Rhodes place. One gravestone, and undressed slab of limestone, bore the name of a young Rhodes, born in 1800 and died in 1825. His stone got misplaced years ago when some boys were allowed to get inside the iron fence and root the stones about over the enclosure. This Jacob Rhodes belonged to the generation of Anthony and Samuel Rhodes and who he was related in I am not aware. His widow, Catherine sold the farm to Joshua Wampler about 1855. Casper Kennedy has possession of the farm at present.
