The List of Names


     The Stephen Gose family cemetery is located in Bland County, Virginia, north of Bastian and near the community of Grapefield.   From US Highway # 52, turn west on route # 614 and drive approximately 5 miles and the little cemetery is on the left of the road.

     The cemetery is about 100 feet from the road and up on a very small long knoll.   The cemetery is in very bad condition and NO stones can be read at this time.   There are a few stones still present in the cemetery.

     The following records are mostly from a family history written by Mathias Ambrose Fox about 1900, with a few dates taken from, "Pioneers of The Virginia Bluegrass," by George B. Gose.   It appears they may be from 20 to 25 graves in the cemetery.
