Thompson, Robinson, Phillips Cemeteries

Hi, I just came back from Bedford County. My main goal while up there was to locate and photograph my ancestor's tombstones. I had seen a cemetery book for the county around 3 years ago and still had notes to where my ancestors are buried. I found the Willow Mount Cemetery because it's kind of hard to miss and the Cannon cemetery was no problem either. I was using a GPS and maps but there are like 3 Thompson Cemeteries on the USGS website and I could not find any of them. Do these cemeteries still exist? If so, do you have directions? I don't plan on going back until winter.

Also, I see that there are 2 Robinson Cemeteries listed. I found one not too far from Willow Mount cemetery on the left side but it was so grown up that I couldn't even see stones. That's why it'll be winter before I go back. Where is the other Robinson Cemetery?

I've been told that the Phillips Cemetery was destroyed and apartments are now where it was. The GPS coordinates place the cemetery a few hundred feet behind these apartments though and around 500 feet behind a animal health office. I didn't go walking to see because I would have been trespassing but does anyone remember seeing this cemetery and maybe know if it was really destroyed? James Matthew Phillips and Amanda Robinson Phillips were my direct ancestors and were buried there.

Thank you!
