I recently found a death notice for my ggggreat-grandfather, ELIJAH L. POWELLL. It mentions him being buried at the "old family burying-ground near King Willam Courthouse." Does anyone know of a POWELL family cemetery in King William? Elijah L. POWELL was married first to AMANDA ROBINS, had 3 children ELIJAH LESLIE, NEWLAND J. EUSEBIA, then to FRANCES (FANNIE) E. CATLETT, which whom he had several more children. I will post the death notice below to help others searching this family. Any help would be appreciated greatly.

He leaves a wife and 9 children to mourn their loss.
His remains will be interred in the old family burying-ground, near King William Courthouse, Saturday at 12 o’clock.
