As promised I have more grave markers for all you genealogist out there. The first cemetery I will be visiting today is the Dalton Cemetery in Sycamore, Virginia which is really Gretna. This cemetery is not to be confused with the other Cemetery in the woods near Brights. Although, this one is only minutes away from the one we visited on the November 22, 2010 through November 24, 2010 blogs and these are kin to each other.
This is the view from the Dalton cemetery. All those rolling green hills. It reminds me of the movies of the English countryside. I can see why so many people migrated here. It may have reminded them of their home. Although, back in the 18th century, this was a pretty, rugged wild place. Most of the land had to be cleared and cultivated. I can't imagine the hard work that was involved.
