African American Cemeteries Forum

Virginia Beach, Va., Cemeteries

Per http://www.pagh.pillars.net/

Unmarked cem near N.E cor West Neck Rd. & Princess Anne Rd. Previous City Property map showed church property extending from West Neck Road to Princess Anne Rd. in an "L" shape. It also showed a small rectangle on the leg extending to P.A. Rd.
(Note: the church was recently built)

I was told that the rectangle was a slave cemetery, but that it was unmarked. I didn't see it myself

Apparently it has been re subdivided and I suspect the cem has been ignored.

This needs to be investigated, with former plats found in the deed room. I'm concerned that development will obliterate the site.

2nd:
Possible unmarked cem behind 1212 PRINCESS ANNE RD Behind church property, Tax map shows a small rectangle and I have heard that there is a graveyard back there somewhere.

This needs further investigation
