Robert E. Meade1816 —1888
This stone has been disturbed and moved from its original location in this cemetery by cattle. The top line of inscription is practically illegible.
This is Confederate veteran Hon. Robert Everard Meade, CWS f BCV, pp. 364-65.

This cemetery sits beneath a few large trees and is within 20 ft of an old farm silo. There are no obvious perimiters to the cemetery and there is no evidence of other graves, probably due to the many years of cattle trampling the area.

CWS f BCV is Civil War Soldiers from Brunswick County, Virginia
