Submitted by Jeannette Seitz, Aug 26, 2006, last edited Feb 19, 2007 [j-gen@cox.net]. Total records = 99.

Cemetery is located on the north side of Rt. 30, near the intersection of Rte 30 and Courthouse Lane, just southeast of the King William Courthouse, beside the church.

The sign in front of Saint James Presbyterian Church states that it was built in 1894, so the cemetery probably was establish shortly thereafter. The cemetery appears to still be in use.

I assume that the church staff is responsible for maintaining the cemetery, which surrounds the church building on three sides and is in very good condition.

I have transcribed from the digital photos taken by my mother, Criss Faison, in May of 2005. This transcription includes all existing and legible headstones up to that date.
