Location

North of Edom, Rockingham County, Virginia. From corner of Route 33 West (W. Market Street) and Route 42 in Harrisonburg, travel 8.3 miles north on Route 42 (Harpine Highway). On the right side of the road in a field just north of the Lincoln home. Get permission to visit cemetery.
 

Notes

Plot is surrounded by an iron fence and well maintained. In 1933 John W. Wayland noted, "In and around this graveyard, which now is enclosed by an iron fence formerly by a brick wall, were buried some of the Lincoln Negro slaves." He goes on to note that the Lincoln family graveyard is on the original John Lincoln tract of 1768 on Linville Creek.
