Comments: 

     

Dates or text in Red are not inscribed on the tombstone and have either been calculated based on death date or are as a result of research on the individual.

This page is the result of recent readings of this cemetery done by WVCPA contributors James "Cam" and Joan Crane, with additional research and photos done by Betty Briggs in June 2006.  Many of the inscription details and description of unidentified graves and their locations was contributed by Betty.  We hope to add the full dates and inscriptions for all of the tombstones as they become available to us - come back to this page at a later date and see how it's going!  To see the photos for this cemetery, we highly recommend visiting Betty Briggs' website "WV Pioneers" and click on the "Cemeteries link to see her latest tombstone photography work in the Jackson and Wirt County regions.
