Rockingham County Virginia Tombstones by Cemetery

CemeterySmith Creek Cemetery
LocationNortheast Rockingham County, Virginia. In 1961 Gertrude Zirkle & J. William Harpine wrote the cemetery is located on the east side of Smith Creek, on the old Lewis Zirkle farm south of Endless Caverns about one mile, is one of the older family cemeteries in that immediate neighborhood.
NotesIn 2011 no attempt was made to locate this cemetery. In 1960s D.A.R. noted about 35 graves mostly the descendants of Lewis Zirkle and his wife Mary Magdalene Roush Zirkle. In 1961 Gertrude Zirkle wrote-the cemetery is enclosed by a wire fence. Many of the markers have fallen down and like so many other family burial lots, it has had very little attention for years.
