Special Burials:
Goldy Girl and 
Trigger Bub
The late Anna King Jeffries, (she and her husband Lloyd, both buried here, were the former owners of the Jeffries farm where this cemetery is located), was a great lover of her dogs, and these two were among her favorites.  The family knew that Anna would love knowing that these two faithful pets had places of honor for their burials, and laid them to rest here at the edge of the family cemetery when they passed on after their dear mistress.  Anna & Lloyd's daughters Norma & Amy and their husbands now care for this cemetery, and when we visited here in June 2004 and found no one at home, their happy, the Casto's well-loved beagles welcomed us with their gleeful barks and wagging tails!  31 Click for photo of tombstone Source: WVCPA reading of the cemetery in June 2004

 

Comments: Much of the information for this cemetery has been provided by our dear friend and close cousin, Reta Harrison, Jeffries family researcher and descendant of Daniel & Margaret Jeffries. Her many years of family research, and that of her compatriot in research Elouise Harrison (another of our Harrison cousins) have been a constant inspiration and support to Joel and I in our own research and cemetery preservation work.  Their combined knowledge of local history and family ties is incomparable, and we love them both dearly.  Thank you Tillie & Elouise!

A plot map of this cemetery is in progress, hence the plot map reference numbers above.  For the curious, the numbers next to each other in sequence are more or less burials alongside each other.  You can view the map in progress by clicking on the thumbnail image below. North/South orientation is approximate.  The Fisher Ridge road is located to the East of the cemetery. Confirmation of position of all burials anticipated late fall/early winter 2004, after we have again visited this cemetery.
