Elgin-Brown Family Cemetery

This exhibit documents the Elgin-Brown Cemetery in Clifton, VA. The cemetery is home to at least eight members of the Elgin family who lived in the Clifton area during the 19th century. The family serves as an example of an average family living at that time. They also give way to the topic of eugenics as the youngest member of the family, Isaac Elgin, was a patient at the Western State Hospital where sterilizations were carried out during the 21st century.
