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 contributors Lisa and Gary Davis visited the cemetery in September 2007, two large tombstones were identified (though fallen over on their faces, so could not be read), as well as a small, infant-sized stone leaning up against a tree inscribed "K.D.", as seen in the photo at the top of this page. WVCPA volunteers will be returning to the cemetery to try and dig out the larger stones to positively identify them and will be reporting their findings to us for posting on this page. Further attempts at preserving this little family cemetery from further destruction are open to possibilities. Contact WVCPA at if you'd be interested in helping out.
