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.

The listing for this cemetery, along with a large number of tombstone photos, was initiated by long time WVCPA contributor Keith Weekley. He writes regarding this cemetery and his efforts presented here:

"This is the largest cemetery in Jackson County that I found.  There are thousands of graves here.  I have just listed a few, mostly my relatives and I am leaving the balance for the local people of Jackson Co., to complete this for their County and [for posting on] the internet.  It is an 800 mile round trip for me to drive up here each weekend and my car wants out of this.  This cemetery would be a major project for two or three church groups to complete. Jackson county is represented here with names such as Anderson, Bozo, Casto, Parsons, Staats, Rowley, Weekley, Hughes, McGlothlin, King, Rardin, McCoy, Ankrum, Bibbee, Vosburgh and many others."

WVCPA thanks Keith for his great work, and we look forward to volunteers stepping forward to assist with provided a complete, up-to-date listing for this cemetery, and hopefully additional tombstone and views from throughout the cemetery from various times of the year. If you or your community or church group are willing to donate your time to providing this service to the community and sending a listing to post here, please contact WVCPA!
