Prince William County Cemeteries

The Prince William County Historical Commission funded this effort to document all the cemeteries in Prince William County to update the Cultural Resource maps. A Garmin 12 GPS was used to record the latitude and longitude as close to the center of the cemeteries as possible. The size of the cemeteries ranged from the very large Stonewall Memory and Quantico National to the grave site with only one field stone. More than 400 cemeteries were documented, but there are still many that could not be located. It is hoped that in the future someone will build on this work just as I used the work of Ren Conner and Jan Townsend as a base to start. Without the help of Howard Thompson who spent hours taking me to cemeteries and helping to find others, this project would not have been as complete. Another special thank-you to Jim Florence, Nelson Keys, and Richard Runaldue for providing locations and information about many cemeteries.

I would also like to acknowledge all the other people who have helped with this project: Sam Bachman, Bill Bear, John Samsky, Dan Abel, Gerry & Janie McDonald, Gayle McDonald, Michael Allison, Aileen Kelmartin, Charles Jamison, Herbert Bates, Heather Crowl, Pauline Davis, Walter Coverston, Jim Burgess, James Cooke, Bill Ellis, Jan Cunard, William Clem, Don Wilson, Bob Bainbridge, Emily Schreader, Tish Como, Beverly Veness, Bobby Caton, Sara Turner, Turner Smith, Turner Reuter, Keith Cotner, Tony Urso, Raymond Burne, John Brower, Betty Duley, Morgan Breedon, Elaine Yankey, Bettie Berry, Bettye Butler, Linda Green, Linda Wright, Ralph McDowell,Mary Field, Charles Hedges, Carole Maniglia, Abe Davis, Mary Carter, James Carter, James George, Debrarae Karnes, Frazier Hendrick, Jackie Keeney, Debbie Moore, Oscar Hogan, Leon Nickens, Nettie Deal, Daniel deButts, Cynthia Pfanstiehl, Glen Callihan, Joe Gray, Lillian Gaskill, Emma Shutlack, Scott Parham, Rich Richardson, James Cornwell, Lester Cornwell, and Prince William County Supervisors Ed Wilbourn, Marty Nohe and John Jenkins for there personal support and assistance with this project.
