Gravely/Buford/Millner & Hatcher – Soapstone, Virginia

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

Bob & Kathy DeLong came up to Virginia from Texas to see the Peyton J. Hatcher family cemetery at Soapstone, Virginia on May 8, 2008.  I met “Biker Bob” on the internet.  He is a descendant of the Hatcher family. 


Bob and Kathy stand at the Peyton J. Hatcher family cemetery.  The walls are about 20 x 40 feet.  There are field stones insise and outside.  The only marker is within the wall.  Peyton J. Hatcher purchased the land in 1851 and it was in the same family for 127 years until we bought 85 acres in 1978.
