Wise Family Cemetery

The Wise Family Cemetery is located in Chessonnessex, Virginia, a short drive from the Onley Farm, the plantation and home of the only Governor of Virginia from the Eastern Shore, Henry A. Wise. The 50'x 50' plat is enclosed with a brick wall and a wrought iron gate. Literary quotations on marble slabs, memorial plaques are on the inside of the wall, and gravestones are arranged in four rows some of which date to the late 17th century.
