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.
