We were up in Lee County VA on a mission to document Hagan tunnel, where there is an interesting railroad wye. On the way back, just past Jonesville, we saw this old general store. The right hand side is early, the left newer. We walked around back and were standing there looking at the grave marker, when a gentleman approached us and told us that this was a slave graveyard. Indeed, the death date on the tall marker was 1852. Several other stones are unmarked. It reminded me that what is known as the lower Gragg graveyard up on Bays Mountain in Kingsport is reputedly made up of slave burials. None of the stones there are readable.
