Dover Baptist Cemetery
Manakin, Goochland County, Virginia

Contributed by Cheryl Proffitt, Apr 08, 2007 [silverlight7@comcast.net]. Total records = 159.

To reach the cemetery from Hwy 6 (River Road West) in Manakin, take Manakin Road (Hwy 621) north for about 1/2 mile. Cemetery is on the right or east side of the road, north of the church.

The church was established in 1773, but I do not know when the cemetery was established. The earliest marked burial site was in 1830. The cemetery remains in use today and is maintained by the church.

This transcription is of all existing and visible burials as of Apr 06, 2007, when I visited the site. There are thirteen stones where the markings are not visible at all.
