First Antioch Baptist Church


First Antioch Baptist Church Cemetery

(Partial Cemetery View)



     The First Antioch Baptist Church cemetery was surveyed in March 2009 by Raymond Butcher. In addition to engraved tombstones and funeral home markers, there are at least 6 graves marked with funeral home markers which are no longer readable, and 1 grave which has been overgrown by a bush. There are also obvious other unmarked graves. The cemetery is maintained in excellent condition and may be reached by:
     1. Take Rt. 60 west from Chesterfield to Powhatan.
     2. Continue west to the intersection of Rt 60 and Rt. 522.
     3. Turn right on Rt. 522 (Maidens Road).
     4. The church and cemetery are approximately 6.5 miles on the right.
