Lyon Family Civil War Era Cemetery

Pvt. Richard "Dick" Moran, known as the "Warring Methodist", a member of the 43rd  Va. Cavalry and leading member of "Mosby's Rangers" is buried here.  Also buried here are members of the Burdine, Edwards, Havener, Hawes, Jackson, Lyon, Moran, Paxson, and Shryock Families.

The graveyard is in disrepair, with most residents' headstones missing (including Dick Moran's).  Other headstones are barely legible, broken and cracked, or fallen over.  The grass has long overrun the area, concealing tombstones, rocks, and ruts.  There are also various holes created by burrowing critters, either just into the ground or even into graves themselves.
