Middleton Cemetery, Putnam County, West Virginia

Middleton Cemetery, Putnam County, West Virginia - Gary tombstone?

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.

Our thanks to WVCPA volunteer Terry McCallister for bringing this cemetery to our attention and providing the photos for this page.  Work is being done to establish the ownership of this cemetery and to gather family descendants and volunteers to rescue this cemetery from its horrible mass of briars and underbrush. According to Terry, this cemetery sits on a prominent knoll overlooking the new highway, adjacent to a new housing development and could be an asset to the community rather than the forlorn graveyard that it has become from many years of neglect. If you would like to help rescue this cemetery, contact WVCPA and we'll put you in touch with Terry who is coordinating the rescue along with one of the descendants - weedeaters, pruners, shovels, hot coffee - however you can help, it will all be most appreciated!

<< Photos from the cemetery - note the fairly new tombstone in the lower photo. Too
     unclear in photo to positively identify, but likely to be that of Bertie Gary and another
     family member, due to its newness.
