Comments: Dates in Red above 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.

If you know of names of persons that should be added to this list, please contact WVCPA with the basic information (like the listing above), including the information source as well so that we may note that with the record on this page.

The reading for this cemetery was contributed by Bryan & Melissa Conley. Photos are hoped to be added to this page in the future. They note the following:

"Obvious effort has been made to identify some of the numerous unmarked graves and a plot map has been devised & posted to show the efforts. Be advised that not all marked graves are listed on this map. Some dates show minor discrepancies."
