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.

From Putnam County Cemetery Inscriptions: This cemetery is "located about 2 miles south of Winfield on Little Hurricane Creek. It is situated approximately half way up the hill south of the juncture of Harmon Branch Road, Sec. Rt. 29/4, and Sec. Rt. 29.  Where Rt. 29 crosses Little Hurricane Creek, go left of an unoccupied mobile home.  The cemetery is in woodland -- acres of myrtle mark the spot -- and is totally unattended.  Over half the monuments are down and scattered.  There are 20-25 graves not identifiable". 

A WVCPA volunteer visited this cemetery in April 2004 and indicated that conditions of the cemetery had apparently not improved since Ruth & Bill Ellis last read the cemetery in July 1987.  He will get back to the cemetery when he can and get photos to us to post on this page.
