Brubaker Cemetery
Roanoke City, Virginia

Lat: 37° 17' 59"N, Lon: 80° 04' 39"W, approx.

Contributed by Chuck Garst, Mar 29, 2000 [cgarst@garstfamily.com]. Total records = 101.

From Roanoke, take Rt. 11 north and turn left on Rt. 117 (Peters Creek Road). Travel south approximately 2 miles, turn right on State Route 628 and continue to State Route 805, turn right to Montgomery property. The cemetery is on the hill and runs parallel to Interstate 81.

The J. E. Brubaker cemetery has been restored and is mowed regularly, it is a large one and is still in use.

Some dates were furnished by Marvin Neighbors, who copied the stones before they were submerged in concrete. The graves are listed as they lie.

I walked the cemetery and completed this transcription in March of 2000.
