Hayter Valley Cemetery Extracted from: "Russell Co., VA. John Million Combs Cemetery (See Copyright Restrictions). "Located high on a ridge above Rt. 615 near the junction of Rt. 631 along Weavers Creek near Big A Mtn. The cemetery lies on part of the original Combs plantation and specifically on the part which was willed by William Combs to his sons John M. & Thompson Combs in 1841. I have given the cemetery the designation as the John Million Combs Cemetery as most of the identifiable stones are of his family & descendants, although his sister Nancy J. "Combs" Musick is also buried there. There are also many field stones in the cemetery, so there may be other members of the family also buried there, including probably William & Anna "Thompson" Combs. Unfortunately, we may never know for sure. This cemetery is in pretty good shape for its age. There are a few stones that have fallen over though." Note: Items in brackets () have been added by the compiler. (Contributed to the US GenWeb by Glenda Osborne & Michael A. Dye)
