Smith Family Cemetery

Virginia Beach, VA
Old Princess Anne County

I had just learned of the cemetery at a luncheon.  It would be one that was easy to locate, so I was anxious to visit that day.  A quick trip home to shed my suit and heels;  pick up my digital camera;  and I was off!.  The instructions were simple.  Take North Lynnhaven Road until it reached the stoplight at Kings Grant Road and proceed just to the left.  The cemetery would be quite visible.  But I was stopped at the described intersection and saw absolutely nothing that resembled a cemetery down the road to the left.  Deciding to give the intersection a full rotation scan while I was stopped, I was surprised to see the cemetery sitting just outside my right passenger window.  A quick u-turn on the next street, to avoid the ire of my fellow motorists, and the cemetery was at hand.  It actually sits just before the intersection of North Lynnhaven and Kings Grant Road on the northeast corner, separated by a small fence from its nearby neighbors.  Everyone who stops at the traffic light on the heavily traveled road can bring greetings to its occupants.  It is well kept, reportedly by its new neighbors, who most probably are not descendants.  Cemetery Photographed May 15, 2004.
