Civil War Cemetery off Courthouse Rd in Chesterfield Virginia
The first railroad in Virginia has remnants at the Mid-Lothian mines and off of Sturbrigde road, where you can find the old stone culvert that allows Falling Creek to pass under the earthen remains. Tracing a line between these two points, allowed us to look for other possible points of adventure, including this old cemetery, located off of Courthouse Rd.
“Sacred to the memory” of Jameson Moody and Mary Susan, his wife, the grave stones date back to the early half of the 1800’s. Several of the stones have additional markers, denoting service in the civil war.
The outskirts of the grave site are maintained; the only possible sign of a previously existing structure, was the old stone on the far southwestern corner.
