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.David Sayre Cemetery, Jackson Co., West Virginia

Besides those listed above, at the reading of this cemetery in October 2006, there appeared to be several unmarked graves as well, based on the depressions in the ground, and a few marked with illegible or uninscribed markers.

In the photo to the right, the cemetery is located behind and to the left of the barn - you can just make out a few of the tombstones through the trees.
