Comments:

From Ward-Aten Cemetery in Mason Co., West Virginia

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 sits pretty much all on the top of the hill in a more or less flat area. It is well cared-for, and is high enough above the surrounding forest to catch a nice little breeze on a hot day! There were a few good sized pine trees on top to provide shade as well. A pleasant little cemetery to visit!
