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. 

This cemetery was brought to the attention of WVCPA by a Fry family researcher (different Fry family line) from Ohio, alerting us to the deplorable condition that it was in per April 2009. Local WVCPA volunteers have since visited the cemetery and taken photographs that will be posted on this page as soon as they are delivered. The reading information provided here is from the Fry family researcher, supported by a reading of the cemetery in October 1970 that was published in the "Mason Co., W.Va. Cemetery Inscriptions", Vol. I by Violette Machir.
