Rockingham County Virginia Tombstones by Cemetery

CemeteryMaiden Cemetery
LocationBeldor area, from Harrisonburg, east on Route 33 through Elkton. Go south on Rt. 628 (Beldor Rd.) about 3/10 mile to first sharp bend; road on left side with a chain across it. Park on right side of road and walk up hill about 5/10 mile to cemetery.
NotesCemetery is well maintained. Headstones were recorded from back to front (south to north) and facing stones, left to right (east to west). Notes in "Remarks" column are provided by DAR and Lois B. Bowman. Excerpt taken from book "The Undying Past: History of Shenandoah National Park" by Darwin Lambert, 1989 on page 283: "Burials started, according to legend, when a Mr. Maiden, riding horseback, was killed by lightning that melted his watch chain, and he was buried here under a cedar tree where he fell. According to Billie Jo Monger, who has done much historical and genealogical research, William David Maiden (1799-1875) and his wife Sarah Harris Gardner Maiden (1798-1886) are credited with starting the cemetery."
