Sorry to say but I have found that there are grave sites (not necessarily cemeteries) in the woods even today that are not accessible, nor are they known about. People started being buried in church cemeteries mainly because they owned no land on which to be buried (these folks were considered poor). The years you are looking for would put these folks in the catagory of being buried on their own land. Unfortunately these VA counties have not been well searched and written up as far as graves are concerned. If an ancestor was buried on his land, chances are great that there is no marker or the marker disinigrated or was used for porch steps etc in later years. Many have been plowed over as in the case of my ancestors. This was not uncommon. You may never find a burial site for your ancestor.
