History: This began as a family cemetery (or soon became one) for descendants and inlaws of John Ward and Herodias Reynolds Adkins from Pittsylvania County, Virginia. However, the first known burial is of Mary Eliza Eggleston Cornagie, from Illinois, who apparently has no relation. There is a beautiful headstone for Herodias, the matriarch of the Adkins family, but no marker for her husband, because he wasn't buried here. The reason behind this is a long, impossible to verify, story involving murder, abandonment and possibly adultery. In the Henry County court records, his son, John D. Adkins, signed an affidavit stating his father's death was 1876 in Taylorsville, Texas.
