Wick-Payne Plantation
Posted by: Donnie Noel (ID *****8293) Date: October 06, 2013 at 14:42:39
  of 1883

A distant relative, J.J. Hyler, died in Richmond, VA. in 1937. He was originally from Pittsylvania Co. and his body was brought back for burial.
According to the obit in the Danville Bee, he was buried in a Hyler Cemetery at Wick Payne Plantation near Mt. Cross.
I have used Google Earth, and checked Virginia Dept. of Transportation's individual county road map for Pittsy. I also check a 1928 topographical map for that area all to no avail. Where is this cemetery and where is/was Wick-Payne Plantation?
I know that the Hilers/Hylers lived in Brosville and Bachelor's Hall. Is this part of the same clan?
