Inscription. The remains from 29 graves were brought here from the Wagener family cemetery at Stisted, their plantation on the Occoquan River near Colchester. The Second Peter Wagener (1717–1774), Clerk of the Fairfax County Court (1752–1772), served as a Vestryman and Church Warden of Truro Parish. His son Peter (1744–1798) succeeded him in both these Parish and County Offices and was Clerk of the Vestry (1781–1785). The tombstone of the younger Wagener, a Lieutenant in the Revolutionary War, was moved here by the Fairfax County Chapter of the D.A.R. in 1974.
