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.

A note from WVCPA volunteer, Michael Henline:

"In the spring of 2008 the cemetery was overgrown to the point that it was impossible to photograph individual markers.  The property changed hands and the new owners started a restoration project, beginning with the removal of brush. The photos above show the overgrown cemetery and how it currently looks."

WVCPA extends their sincere thanks to Michael for his work on documenting this cemetery, along with so many others in Webster County, and sharing that information with us on this web site. We also thank the landowners of this cemetery, for their concern and care of this special cemetery. We wish that there were many more folks like you!
