The cemetery is the last remnant of the homestead of John A. and Mary Marshall. The house, which had stood nearby, was relocated and later burned in the 1970s. Damaged by vandals earlier this year, the privately owned cemetery was recently restored in a community effort including Marshall family descendants, local leaders, county employees and volunteers. This successful project has spurred creation of a permanent volunteer organization to preserve Fairfax County’s hundreds of forgotten cemeteries before they are lost.
