A simple metal sign hooked to a chain-link fence identifies the Mount Hope Baptist Church Cemetery along the Montague Loop off of Eskimo Hill Rd. in Stafford, VA. The cemetery with over 100 graves is bordered by trees and private property. Although the cemetery encompasses a large area, most of the graves are clustered on the east side. Newer burials appear to be in the NE corner. There is a small group of markers in the NW corner off by themselves. The earliest burials date in the late 1800s.
For a list of burials, see Suzanne Shephard's Stafford Co. VAGenWeb database for the Mt. Hope Baptist Church Cemetery.
Interestingly, the Mount Hope Baptist Church is located approximately 1½ miles away and is not physically connected to this cemetery.
