Does anyone have contact information for the Amherst County Public Cemetery?

I just found out that my great great grandmother Roberta Blanche McGinnis was buried somewhere in Amherst County. She was the wife of Richard C. Stinnette who is buried in the Amherst County Public Cemetery.

Richard died in 1916 and after that Roberta moved to Newport News to be near some of her sons. She died in Newport News in 1934 and according to her obituary was buried in Amherst County.

Her name is not in "Gravestone Inscriptions in Amherst County Virginia" nor was there a stone for her next to her husband when I visited the cemetery in August 2006.

My first assumption is that she is buried there and that a stone was never placed on her grave. I can't find any contact information for the Amherst County Public Cemetery Office. I'm hoping that they would have burial records and could tell me if Roberta is buried there or not.

Thanks!
