Comments: 

Wm. Frazier Family Cemetery, Putnam County, WVDates 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 visited by WVCPA contributor and Frazier family researcher Scott McDowell in September 2009, and its condition was much better than reported earlier. Scott also provided GPS coordinates, more photos and additional background information to supplement what WVCPA contributor Pam Backus sent us in 2008. Our thanks to both Pam and Scott for providing the photos, reading and directions to this cemetery. Additionally, Scott has provided a sketch of the cemetery layout that you can view by clicking here.
