Dear Lia,

All I know to tell you is that Wealthy Hartwell died on September 17, 1880, which I believe was buried in Roanoke, VA. This is where David Sink's parents are buried, with a large monument since his father - Stephen Sink - was a Revolutionary War veteran.

We believe that David was born sometime in 1787, did die January 17, 1872.

My father actually went on vacation out that way and found it. From Rocky Mount, VA take Highway 122 north 10 miles. At Burnt Chimney, VA, turn right on Highway 670. Go about one and a half miles to Highway 900. Turn right and go about one mile. On the right side (west) behind the two new houses, back in the woods, is the location of the cemetery.

If I find out any more information, I will let you know.
