Cannon Branch Cemetery

IMG_7079The Cannon Branch area was settled after the Civil War by members of the German Baptist Brethren later called the Church of the Brethren. They built a meeting house in 1895 about 200 feet southwest of the current church facility, and established the cemetery in 1896 on land donated by Elder Abram and Lovina Conner. In 1953, Benjamin and Crystal Wakeman gave an additional one-half acre, and in 1988 the cemetery was enlarged to the west by a land exchange with the City of Manassas. The congregation relocated in 1953 to a modern building (on Route 28 closer to Manassas) and maintains the cemetery through a perpetual care trust.

Cannon Branch Cemetery is located on Godwin Drive near the intersection of Nokesville Road in Manassas, Virginia (Prince William County).
