Notes from WVCPA volunteer Steve Iman:

"When visited in October, 2007, the Cemetery did not appear to receive frequent attention. Nine graves were obvious. Five were identified with visible names, the remaining were marked with field stones.  In addition to the markers photographed various family members state that there was three known burials.

Lloyd A. Lanham was a son of George Lewis Lanham and Narissa Adeline Jones, and Della Mae Page Lanham was the wife of Lloyd A. Lanham. Clemie Westfall Cummings was a daughter of George Lewis Lanham and Narissa Adeline Jones, and the wife of Cisco Cummings."

WVCPA thanks Steve for the documenting and photographing of this cemetery, and graciously providing it for us to share with our viewers.
