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 cemetery has been heavily damaged by an adjacent land owner's abuse of the ground by reported removal of what stones marked the graves, and establishment of a picnic area with heavy ATV traffic over the site. Action is underway by local citizens to restore and protect the cemetery, with plans to fence the cemetery itself to prevent further desecration. As WVCPA receives more information and photos, they will be added to this page.
