Located in the Springfield area on Rt. 28/3.
R. M. Washington bought to town last week two slate tombstones which are very old. One has on it "P P 1785" which was the tombstone of one of the ancestors of the Pancake family. The other stone had on it "S W. 1773" which marked the grave of Sarah Williams, an ancestress of G.W. Parsons, whose daughter's history is recorded in Kercheval's history of Virginia as having been kidnapped by Indians and reared by them. The stones were in a graveyard in the center of a field. The graves have long since been demolished and the stones thrown aside. They have been placed in the Parsons tower in Indian Mound Cemetery.
