This hefty volume contains tombstone inscriptions for the majority of both public and private cemeteries in Bland County, Virginia and contains author's notes of great genealogical value. Unlike most cemetery listings, the author went one step further - she visted courthouses and obtained documentation throughout Bland County to give the tombstone inscriptions great depth and honor those deceased in Bland County. This is a GREAT research book with gobs of information.
