Tharp Cemetery
Near Rock Oak
Hardy County, West Virginia

Census taken May, 1980. Contributed by Suzanne W. Whitson.

This census was taken by Clifton and Lila Funkhouser in May, 1980. They recorded many Hardy County cemeteries and generously wanted their work made available to the public; therefore, they gave a copy to the Hardy County Public Library. It is reproduced here with permission from the Library.

This cemetery is thought to be the Tharp Cemetery since Tharp family members were the first known to be buried there. It is located on the back road that goes past the Arlie Funk home (in 1980) which was previously owned by Grover Evans. The road continues on past the home of George Hoke (in 1980) near Rock Oak.
