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.

Note from WVCPA volunteer, Charlotte Iman: "The cemetery is well maintained, only 1 unidentified grave was found, believed to be a member of the Kiser family. Eight were identified with small markers bearing three initials each.  All ended with the letter "G".  Monuments bearing the Garrett family name were located in the same row."

WVCPA thanks Charlotte for the background research and photographs of this cemetery, and for her husband Steve's able assistance.
