Sinking Spring Cemetery: Cemetery is the final resting place for Brig. Gen. John B. Floyd, Lt. Col. W.W. Blackford, Civil War era Richmond newspaper editor Robert Hughes, and over 30 Confederate soldiers are interred in the "Unknown Confederate Dead" section of the cemetery. Brig. General John Hunt Morgan was placed in the above ground tomb for a few days, prior to being relocated in Richmond, Virginia's Hollywood Cemetery. Directly across the street from Sinking Spring Cemetery is the African American Cemetery, the final resting place of Landon Boyd. Boyd was one of the jurors selected for the trial of former Confederate President Jefferson Davis. Davis' case never went to trial.
