Survey Description:  Site consists of a large family cemetery with at least 85 graves.  The observed monuments are notable for their form and lengthy inscriptions.  All of the graves were surrounded by a brick enclosure.  The enclosure has a concrete foundation and iron gates interrupt the west and north walls.  A variety of monument types in the cemetery include box tombs, granite and marble headstones, uninscribed fieldstone markers, metal markers, lawn-type markers, and plaque markers.  Two unmarked graves were identified on the basis of ground surface depressions.  Other unmarked graves may exist.  All of the observed graves were oriented to the northeast.  Cemetery is covered with mowed grass and historic plantings include cedar trees, periwinkle and boxwoods.  Site was field inspected, photographed, and grave marker inscriptions were transcribed and compared to previous documentation.  Site size was derived from local realty maps.

Additional Comments:        Assigned temporal period was based on the 1862 through 1998 range of death dates inscribed on observed headstones.  However, the presence of uninscribed fieldstone markers and unmarked graves may reflect an earlier use of the site.  The cemetery is marked on the USGS Roanoke map sheet and labeled “cem.” It is also marked on local realty maps and labeled as the “Cocke Cemetery.”  This cemetery is located on the campus of Hollins College.


The cemetery was initially surveyed in 1937 by the Works Progress Administration of Virginia and recorded as the “Cocke Graveyard” in Document #242 of the Historical Inventory of Roanoke County, Virginia.  The WPA file did not provide biographical information for any of the observed graves, but reported that the older graves were marked with uninscribed headstones and only the more recent graves have inscriptions.  The WPA file describes the cemetery as “…a private burying ground for the Cocke family, and is enclosed with a brick wall 50 x 50 feet x 5 feet tall and is kept in excellent condition.”  The RVHS also surveyed the cemetery and documented biographical information derived from inscriptions from 28 headstones that predated 1921 (1986:  93-96).
