Comments: 

 

Dates 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.

On September 12 & 13, 2008, a new chain-link fence was installed by the Coca Cola Company's Stewardship Program. Lunch for the event was donated by Wendy's of Ripley, and a hot dog sale was held on Saturday the 13th to help raise money towards a new sign for the cemetery. If you would like to help towards the effort, or towards the regular care of this cemetery, please contact Martin and Sharon Hartley at 304-273-9525.
