SICKLES CEMETERY

Sherman District


Donald W. Morris of Grantsville informed of his discovery of a Sickles cemetery containing two graves with sandstone markers, located on Sycamore, Sherman District. This cemetery is erroneously shown on the Assessor's Sherman Sheet 17 Map, Tract 9. Actually the cemetery is to the right of the road on Tract 10, Sherman 17 Map, 2.5 acre plot, near the well on land owned one - sixth each by Ruth Witte and others; Scotch McDonald estate; John and Robert McDonald; Louise McDonald; Edith Lee McDonald; and Bernard McDonald. We believe this places this cemetery in the general area of the Civil War battle described by Boyd B. Stutler in his West Virginia in the Civil War.
