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.

According to the WVCPA contributor, Paul Greathouse, there are only two tombstones in the cemetery.  He says that there appear to be several unmarked graves as well those listed above.  Our thanks to Paul for sharing this cemetery information with us!
