November 29, 2010 Grave Matters
the view from the Ward Cemetery in Brights, Virginia. It's really a lovely spot, but developers are surrounding the area now and all the land is broken up in lots for new homes. The development has slowed down due to the economy. I heard a story about when this development first started which may be a little lesson for all us to learn. Everyone knew about the cemetery and that Robert Adams was buried here with his marker for the revolutionary war. One of the relatives went up to visit the cemetery and just caught the developers in time before they disturbed the graves. It was stopped immediately. So don't think that just because the law of the land says that graves should not be disturbed is obeyed. If you know about a family cemetery in the middle of nowhere, it would be wise to have someone check on it every once and while to keep it safe.
All the above markers were found at the Ward Cemetery in Brights, Virginia.
First of all I would like to thank everyone for signing up to be a follower. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to know that people may be enjoying or getting new information from my site. I going to keep on doing my grave sites and pictures of family members. I hope you enjoy.
