...the name of the old grave yard was "Scottsville" 1778-1962...it no longer is used as the space is no longer avaliable and its very overgrown with weeds,briars and unihibited by passerby..it was annexed by the city of scottsville in 1974 as unusable and no stands in a state of decay.as i prodded my way around using my minilab- a crow screamed at me and i noticed the old oak tree he was in..so i detected by the tombs and the tree and got many individual beeps and blurbs. to my surprise these were diamond jewelry and ear rings and a gold necklace from some by gone era. as i was licking my greeding brow i detected more around the tree...BLEEP!!! a canister of perfume filled with coins and a picture of a man. i was shocked to also discover a round pendant in the weeded area of a tomb named -Bobby Deviny 1894-1957 -co-founder of the power co. in scottsville and a major in the II war. the pendant was a Gold medallion inscribed THE U.S. marines. i was blown away by the find!! i am not finished hunting this place and no one comes here because the roads are screwed up and dead ended by signs and its obscured by the trees and the fields. but i did research this place 8 months earlier to find it and there is another graveyard 6 miles east of here in the old defunked town called meadowsboro and is the old seat of the wagon train mail route.**remember to research and dont leave Goffer holes and respect the tombs and have a venture of your own.**NOTE-the one tomb i thought unusual was an old 1920,s actor of silent films -roger Newton Dobbs- he worked with charlie chaplin and he dies in 1969 a rich man -but his grave is all granite and solid and huge-12 by 12 ft 8 ft high and his picture.....chow for now-David shullenburg North carolina
