Deborah - thank you for your reply. I apologize for the delay in responding, because - for whatever reason - I was not made aware of your response.

With Spotsylvania County Real Estated Office, I was able to find that the cemetery belonged to no one - as far back as they could determine - more than 100 years. With their assistnce, and surety that nothing was amiss, I named the cemtery 'Robinson/Smith Family Cemetery', knowing the families belonged to either or both names.

Thank you for the link to LVA. Unfortunately, the website proved to be of no use to my search. Guess poor dirt farmers didn't matter much.

I'm currently reviewing recent findings of early Free Lance Star newspapers posted by the LoC - http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn87060165/1910-01-18/ed-1/seq-1/ to see if I can find the date of my GF. Many historical records such and birth/deaths were not required to be recorded by Firginia from abt 1896-1914 - and they didn't! Much is lost, by their failure to do so.

Thank you for taking the time to write - and, again - my apology for the slow response.

Shirley
