Warfield Cemetery
Located in the woods off Flat Rock Rd. (Route 643) in Warfield. The cemetery is about 80 ft x 80 ft. A memorial identifies the site as the location of the first church built in 1905.
Latitude:36º 53' 56.0" N   (36.898889)
Longitude:77º 49' 10.0" W   (-77.819444)

This cemetery has approximately 6 sections in it. The first section that mainly consists of Hawks is in very poor shape. The fence has fallen down and thorns and vines have taken over the graves and headstones. At least one of the stones had fallen over and had to be pried from the vines in order to even read what was on it.
Civil War Soldiers from Brunswick County, Virginia refers to this cemetery as both Warfield Cemetery and the Hawks Family Cemetery. Considering the large number of people buried here, we are classifying it as a community cemetery.
A memorial reads, SACRED TO THE MEMORY OF MRS. MARY E. LUCY BORN DEC. 2.1825. DEPARTED THIS LIFE APRIL 17, 1907. The founder and nourisher of this Church. She being dead yet speaketh.
Mary lies buried in the Lucy Family Cemetery, Dolphin.
