Forgotten Cemeteries for July 8 Edition

Breckinridge Cemetery

The cemetery is on private property at the Grove Hill Estate. Research from the Kitty Harris Estate indicates that James Breckinridge (1763-1833) is interred there along with other members of his family. The marker for Mary Peachy, wife of George T. Wilmer, is leaning against a tree. A rock wall surrounds the burial ground and photos indicate it was being repaired.

Any additional information would be welcomed and can be sent to the Botetourt Genealogy Club at doreatr@yahoo.com.
