From Interstate 95, take the Doswell exit, #98, and travel east on VA Rt. 30 for 5.1 miles to Caroline. Turn north (left) on US 301 and travel 6.8 miles. Turn east (right) on VA Rt. 654 and travel 2.9 miles. Turn Right (southeast) on Mattaponi Trail and travel 2.2 miles to church and cemetery.

This cemetery is owned and maintained by the Shiloh United Methodist Church, which was founded in 1832 and still meets today. This means the cemetery perhaps started shortly after that date. The presence of recent dates on some headstones indicates to me that they are still accepting burials.

This contains all existing and legible headstones, which I have transcribed from photos taken by my mother, Criss Faison, in September 2003 and am submitting with her permission.
