Cemetery Photos
These are usually from small private cemeteries not included on "Find A Grave" (FAG) or unique photos that an individual wants to share. This webpage was created before FAG existed so duplications may or maynot exist
Submissions Requested
If you have a photograph of a cemetery or headstone within Page County that you are willing to share with others, sent the picture as an attachment to Ken Gissy. Please send at a higher resolution than 72 pixels per inch. When submitting include your name , cemetery and date of the photograph. A short write-up of how to get to it would be helpful.
Many people with Page County ancestors have never visited or seen the area so your sharing will be of great value to them.

The Beach/Shenk Cemetery is located in the Northeast edge of Luray. Take road 211 East out of Luray to road No. F-735, where the cemetery lies on the North side of 211 on the Reuben A. Shenk property (now owned by Chuck Bowen). The cemetery is fenced and in excellent condition. This Shenk cemetery is in very close proximity of the Beahm's Chapel Church and cemetery. Directions initially  from  cemetery  transcriptions  on 14 Apr 1983, by Mrs. Jeanette Conner Ritenour and updated in 2009 by Glenn D. Blanford, PhD

This cemetery is completely overgrown and neglected. I was able to locate only two headstones although numerous unmarked stones mark the location of other graves. To get to the cemetery go down Young Lane, cross the creek, proceed up the road and take the road that veers uphill off to the right. At the top of the hill the road turns to the right into a corn field, follow along the fence line about a quarter mile. Off to the left you will notice a square shaped area about 100 feet from the fence line - this is the cemetery.

Cemetery is Located off Grove Hill River Road in Ingham. Coming from 340 N after you pass the entrance to Shenandoah Gap Subdivision the road will take a sharp right, away from the river up a hill, at the top of the hill there is a trail / road entrance with a wire across it. If you get to the big open field on the left you have gone too far, take down the wire and take the road to the right, follow it until the end, ( Note; you are on a private right of way and you will go behind someone's home please be respectful and don't drive on the grass if wet from rain.) Also this is a very tight road you might want to leave your car at the bottom and walk. All photos by Stuart Lucas.
