WVCPA thanks contributor Gloria Berry and her husband Ron for sharing the information and photos for this cemetery for posting on this page!
She writes (on Sept. 13, 2008) that...:
"...Annabell Criss didn't have a headstone, so I ordered a marker with her information. John, Chessie Leona "Ona" and Monroe's headstones have been weathered worn and unreadable. I had name markers made for them as well. John & Chessis Leona "Ona" had another daughter, Edith B. Criss... married name was Enoch. She is buried at Antioch Cemetery in Palestine... John & Ona had another son, Everett Criss (June 25, 1910 - March 17, 1991), and is buried in Cleveland, Ohio. What cemetery I don't know. They also had another daughter, Arizona, My Mom, and she is still with us thank the Lord. The pictures [on this page] were taken by my husband Ron & I on October 15 & 16, 2007 at Sand Hill when we visited last."
