Nixon Cemetery
Woodburn, Loudoun County, Virginia

19010 Woodburn Road (Route 769), Leesburg VA

Lat: 39° 05' 30"N, Lon: 77° 37' 06"W

Contributed by Anne Braun, Aug 26, 2006 [annieb1961@comcast.net]. Total records = 11.

From the intersection of Highway 15 (James Madison Highway) and Route 704 (Harmony Church Road), go 1.4 miles northwest on Route 704 until you reach Route 769 (Woodburn Road). Turn rignt onto Woodburn Road and go northeast for .2 miles until you reach 19010 Woodburn Road. Turn into the driveway and go up to the house. The cemetery is surrounded by an old stone fence and it is about 40 yards east/southeast of the house.

This is an old family cemetery, which is in fair shape but there a few broken and missing pieces of headstones. The cemetery once was owned by the Nixon family who lived in the area in the late 1700s and early 1800s.

I walked this cemetery on Aug 16, 2006. This transcription contains only the existing and legible headstone readings.
