Belmont Chapel Cemetery

The old Belmont Chapel Cemetery is located near Leesburg, Virginia, just south of the Route 7 and Claiborne Parkway interchange and now on the grounds of St Davids Episcopal Church and School. I visited in July 2006 and photographed the Dove gravesites.

Remains of old Belmont Chapel, destroyed in 1963, after many years of decline, by a fire set by vandals. The tombstones are behind the foundation stones. Overview of tombstones of Dove families.

Brown's Chapel Cemetery

The cemetery is located on Hunter Mill Road, south of the intersection of Route 7 and Baron Cameron Avenue in Fairfax County.

Brown's Chapel was a Methodist Church, built about 1875. In a 1969 Historical American Buildings Survey, Nan Netherton wrote: "In 1874 Augustus and Sarah Brown deeded a half acre of land to trustees of the Methodist Episcopal Church for the erection of a house of worship within 5 years. According to Edward Wagstaff, Curator of Sully, the first services were held in the church in 1879. The Hopkins' Atlas map of that year identifies the church on its original site, the southwest corner of Leesburg Pike and [now] Baron Cameron Avenue. Reverend Augustus Brown and his sons, Joe and Irving, constructed the church building. It served an active congregation until 1967."

The chapel was moved in 1968 to its present site opposite the entrance to the Lake Anne Village Center in Reston so it could be preserved. The cemetery remains on Hunter Mill Road and is well-maintained. It's appearance today is quite different from what I remember in the late 1940s and early 1950s - then it was a sleepy country road, well-treed, off a two-lane Leesburg Pike. We visited a number of times to see my grandmother's grave and leave flowers and sometimes knock down the grass that had grown - the maintenance at that time left a lot to be desired. Images taken in 2003 and 2008, except as noted.

Cedar Hill Cemetery

Located in Suitland, Maryland, just over the District line in Southeast Washington and adjacent to the historic Lincoln Memorial Cemetery. Joseph John Caylor was a principal in the cemetery, which helps explain why so many of his relations are buried there - he had gone so far as to reinter his father at Cedar Hill.  Images taken about 2005.

Hillside - Broad Run Cemetery

In 1995, Eugene Scheel was asked by the Mobil Land Development Corporation to complete a site survey of the area being developed as Broadlands: "1) To define the boundaries of the Broad Run Church property, which held a church and graveyard; 2) To ascertain who might be buried in the graveyard, as the amount and dates of interments could determine the size and shape of the graveyard; 3) To find out from long-time residents and persons with kin in the graveyard how they would like to see the graveyard and church lot maintained, beautified. . . ." This report was provided to me by Betsy Caylor Carter in 2007 (during the scanning of the document and conversion to a pdf file, I corrected a few misspellings and co-joined words to make searching easier).1

This 1926 map shows the major roads in the Waxpool-Ryan-Ashburn area, as well as Beaverdam Creek, flowing north-south just west of Waxpool.  It was not until 1972 that the Beaverdam Reservoir was completed. In 1937 the Waxpool area with rural with many farms on the Waxpool-Ryan Road. John LeFevre's house is visible as is the dairy farm of Earl Smith
In 1957 the area remained rural but the Earl Smith dairy farm, which he had expanded, is more visible. This is a 2002 image. Broadlands was developed in the late 1990s with the homeowners association started in 1995. The cemetery was preserved and enclosed and Waxpool Road was substantially rerouted and expanded - no longer the rural two-lane road I remember from my travels there in 1998-2000.
By 2015 this part of Broadlands was fully developed.
This view of the revitalized cemetery was taken about 1995-97, just after the Broadlands development construction was started. The marker near the cemetery (image taken in 2000).
The next eight images were taken prior to the Broadlands subdivision being built and prior to the partial restoration of the cemetery , probably about 1995 - photographer unknown.
Basil Havener (1800-1855). Possibly James H Brooks ??  His association with the families buried here is unknown.
Joseph Arundell (1808-1881). John Lefevre (1829-1903) and Mary Elizabeth (Howser) LeFevre (1835-1911). Their home was across Waxpool-Ryan Road from the cemetery.
Mary E (Hummer) Havener (1843-1879), wife of Richard H Havener. Samuel LeFevre (1828-1904), brother of John and a veteran of the Civil War.
Peter Oatyer (1751-1834). Rachel (LeFevre) Havener (1811-1890)  and Basil Havener (1800-1855).  Rachel was the sister of Honor (LeFevre) Arundell, John LeFevre and Samuel LeFevre.
Probably Peter Oatyer's wife.
The remainder of the images were taken by Ann Arnold Hennings and Robert Stoy. Monuments had been erected and a fence around the primary grave site had been installed. Unfortunately, grave markers were still being disturbed and burrowing animals were making a mess of the site.

Lyon Family Cemetery

The Lyon Family Cemetery (next to 3rd green, Brambleton Regional Park and Golf Course, Ryan Road) has gravesites for Lyon, Shryock, Moran, Edwards and Dove family members. There's good news and bad news about the cemetery's location. The fact is that it still exists and has been preserved even though the Brambleton Regional Park and Golf Course was constructed in 1994 on the old farmland. However, it's in a fairly run-down condition and has not been maintained well. Images were taken in October 2001.

New Providence Presbyterian Church Cemetery

Originally named the Turkey Presbyterian Church, it is located at the intersection of Springfield Avenue and Passaic Street in New Providence Borough, Union County, New Jersey. Interesting fact: there are 48 Revolutionary War soldiers buried here.  The first church on the site was erected in 1737. All images taken in July 2006.

The entrance is located on Piper Street, 0.8 miles east of Healdsburg Avenue in Healdsburg, Sonoma County, California. All images taken in May 2016. The Walker family is buried on the high point of the "mound" surrounded by live oak trees - hence the name of the cemetery.
