Michaux Grant Family Cemetery

(Partial Cemetery View)



  

      The Michaux Family Cemetery at Michaux’s Grant is located east of 522 and just south of the James River in Powhatan Co., VA in a subdivision called Michaux’s Grant Farms. The family did not use engraved headstones until the time of the Civil War. Between 9 to 12 Fieldstones were use to mark graves, but often the family just knew where someone was buried. Over the years, that information has been lost. Some of those reported to be buried in the cemetery are Abraham Michaux and his wife Susanne Rochet Michaux, their son Jacob Michaux and his wife Judith Woodson, their son Jacob Michaux whose wife was Sally Neville (she is believed to have remarried and is not buried there), their son Jacob Michaux and his wife Mary Ann Elizabeth Woodson. Other children of these couples may also be buried there, as well as the family slaves and local Indians. The Headstones are as follows:
