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.

A complete, updated reading of this cemetery remains to be done.  As you may note, many of the death dates are incomplete from the last reading in the 1970s or early 1980s, as published in "Mason County, W.Va. Cemetery Inscriptions Vol. V."  Photos and any interments from the past 25 years not listed above are needed as well - any volunteers? Contact WVCPA by email if you or your family or community group would like to volunteer.
