CEMETERIES
BY
ARCHIE SR. AND PHYLLIS SUMNER

     We made every attempt to record these cemeteries as we found them. We would clean the stone if need be, then put body powder on the marker then brush it off and read what was there, this is very time consuming. Some markers were very hard to read and so we put what we could not read with ?? marks. One should not rely on the date because sometimes the stone cutter got it wrong or the family did not have the right information. Remember when doing research nothing is written that you might find later was wrong. Everything is a guide unless you have something to back it up.

Charlie Reed Cemetery
    On Jan. 11, 1990 Archie and I visited the cemetery across the road from the Pleasant      Valley Church of the Brethren. This is located on route 750 off Route 8 in Floyd County. This Cemetery is the place where my mother's people are buried. At this time there is no one taking care of the Cemetery. It is covered with creeping vine and groundhog holes.

Cemeteries by Mary Frances Conner Williams

    Floyd County, Virginia
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Sisson Cemetery
    This Floyd County Cemetery was established near Simpsons, circa 1865 by members of the Ludlow B. and
    Catherine Grisso Sisson family. A large number of the first burials in the cemetery were marked with flat fieldstones
    showing no identification. Commercial markers were used in the later years and some of the native stones were
    replaced with the modern cut stones. From Simpsons, Va. On road 653 Shawsville Pike, turn left on Diamond Knob
    Road and travel about one mile. Turn left on School House Lane (Washington School used to be in this vicinity.)
    You will be on a very narrow road and will come up on a "No Trespassing" sign. Stop a little beyond this sign and
    the Cemetery will be up the hill on your left. You will have to back out till you find a place to turn around. Words in
    Parentheses have been added for clarification.
    Some of the unidentified burials that are known to be:
    Ludlow B(ranham) Sisson, b Feb. 3, 1797 in Rockbridge Co., d March 12, 1886 (son of Stanley Sisson and

    Hannah Wilson Sisson, b 1817 d 1895, ( wife of John H Sisson)

    husband of Sarah Magdalene Coon Sisson, b. Jan. 2, 1841 d Feb. 18, 1937. She was buried in Wheatland Cemetery
