Comments from WVCPA volunteers Charlotte & Steve Iman:

"The Boggess Cemetery is located in the Goldtown area of Jackson County, West Virginia.  The cemetery is well maintained. Few recent additions were noted, the most recent occurred in 2005.  When visited in December, 2009, eighteen marked graves were found, most contained complete information.  Three were marked with monuments stating "Daughter"."
