Hankins-Martin-Haley Cemetery, Old Graystone Community, Henry Co., Virginia: Directions: From Axton, Henry Co., Virginia, take Route 647 (Axton Road) North for about 7- miles. Turn left onto Route 612 (Hairfield Lane) and go about 3/10 of a mile. You'll pass a lone house on the right and the cemetery is at the end of the yard and only about 10-yards off the main road. Mr. Davis Hankins is the landowner. You should ask permission before going to the cemetery but if no one is home, it is Ok to go into the cemetery because it is on the side of the road. He does have two dogs that run loose in his yard, and they bark constantly.
