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.

Per the reading in April 2008, there appear to be about 4 graves marked with crude fieldstone but there are shallow depressions that suggest about 6 - 8 additional unmarked graves. 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.
