Amelia Presbyterian Church Cemetery

Amelia County, Virginia


Selected inscriptions. 

 

Corner of Dunn Road (Rt 1002) and Virginia Street (Rt 1009)
Amelia County, Virginia
(located across from the Amelia Co. Public Schools Administrative Offices & 1 block down from the Amelia County Courthouse)

[Possibly was an Episcopal Church or the cemetery was shared by the Presbyterian and another church.  1914 obit of Gervas Henry Southall (who is buried here) states "Mr. Southall was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, . . . . His funeral rites were performed at the cemetery . . .".  Also buried in this cemetery are Rev. Stephen Osborne Southall, "Priest of the Protestant Episcopal Church"; Robert Goode Southall, " Communicant and Vestryman Christ Episcopal Church"; and Philip Frances & Eliza Jane Goode Southall, " Communicants of Christ Episcopal Church".]

Submitted by: Susan Shields Sasek. I visited this cemetery on 27 Sep 1988 & again on 30 Jan 2006.  In 1988, I took photos & copied incriptions from selected headstones (if a picture is not shown for a transcription, it didn't turn out).  In 2006, I took digital pics of my family headstones & "surname related", older headstones & various other headstones.  On the last trip, the digital camera got full before I went through even half of the headstones, so I had to leave & will go back again at a later time.
