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.

When WVCPA staff visited this cemetery in June 2007, it was easily accessible, though heavily covered in weeds and underbrush, so much so that they could not get close enough to get good photos or ascertain the immediate condition of the cemetery itself. When revisiting in October 2007, the overgrown trees had been cut down and a new fence was due to be installed. Additional photos were taken at that time and will be posted on this page soon. The landowner (and descendant of those buried here) is working hard to restore this cemetery to a respectable state. 

This cemetery is still being researched by WVCPA staff. If you have any information to contribute for this cemetery, please contact us.
