Comments:

Date in Red have been calculated based on death date and age at death, or are from research done on that individual. In addition to the above burials, there are known to be eight unmarked graves here pre-dating 1900, and likely are more that are no longer readily visible.

Much of the information on this page has been graciously provided by the Given Cemetery Association - particularly from the research and photography of Mrs. Maxine Landfried of Kenna, WV done in 2004 to compose a booklet to sell to raise funds toward the maintenance of the cemetery. An excerpt of the cemetery history, provided by Mrs. Landfried, may be viewed on the Given Cemetery History page. Our sincere thanks to the Given Cemetery Association for their dedication to the care of this cemetery, and to Mrs. Landfried for her excellent work and willingness to share it with us.

An online plot map of this cemetery is hoped for, but has yet to be completed.  Any volunteers out there who like to sketch? This might be an opportunity to help us out!  See the Josiah Harrison Cemetery Plot Map as an example of what we're looking for.  Once complete, the numbered graves on the plot map are then linked to the photos of the tombstones as well.  Contact us at the WVCPA if you'd like to try your hand and this "artistic" aspect of cemetery documentation!
