Old Ripley aks Early Settlers Cemetery


Location: In Northeast Ripley


I visited the cemetery in May, 2006. It is fenced and well tended although the grass was pretty high that day. I took photos of the markers that were legible. If you would like a better quality picture, contact Betty Briggs.

From "Some Early City, Village and Country Burying Grounds" by John A House

The Ripley Graveyard

Daily the tides of life go ebbing and flowing beside them,
Many the throbbing hearts, theirs are at rest forever,
Many the aching brains, theirs are no longer busy,labors,
Many the weary feet, theirs have completed their journey.
(Author Unknown)

In the year 1808, the first grave was made in the beautiful Ripley Burying-ground, under the shade of the spreading beeches.

Four years earlier, William Parsons, one of the very earliest pioneers of Jackson County, dissatisfied with the rapidly increasing population of the settlements along the Ohio River, and the growing scarcity of game, abandoned his primitive residence at the mouth of Mill Creek, a residence partly pole cabin, partly sycamore tree, and pushed back into the tangled wilderness, locating at the junction of Mill Creek and Sycamore, some twelve miles from the river.

He reared his humble home on the rich, alluvial bottom on the bank of the main creek, just above the mouth of Sycamore, cleared a small tract sufficient to raise corn for his bread and flax for his clothing.

He kept several dogs and the chase furnished meat for his table and skins for bedding and clothing as well as occupation and recreation.

Chasing the bear and stalking the deer filled in the measure left vacant by the treaty of Greenville, for Parsons had been one of the Scouts enlisted by the Virginian Government, during the troublesome days of the border wars. "Spies" was the name given them and their business was to watch the movements of marauding bands or Indians and defend the settlements from their attacks.

His wife was a Fink, from Fink's Run on the Buckhannon River, probably both were from Horse Shoe Bend of Cheat River originally.

In 1808, his wife died and was buried on a little flat in a grove of thrifty young beech trees, beyond the wide plateau and up a little among the foothills. There is no monument and probably the site of the grave is unknown, but it served to consecrate the spot as a burial ground and as the swift years rolled away, another and yet another grave was added with increasing frequency as the colony became more populous.

The site of the cemetery is about one fourth of a mile up Sycamore on the right hand side and a little back from the creek.

A brook comes down by it, from the hills, crossing the Ravenswood and Ripley Pike, under an ancient bridge, and this brook is known as Greens Run, from the execution of a man named Green.

The Ripley Graveyard lies on the lower slope of the hill and comprises a little flat extending across the point, a gentle slope below, reaching down to the brow of a smart declivity and a steeper hillside above, which borders on the highway. The northern side of the flat and lower slope constitute the old graveyard to which was added later, a half acre or more on the southern and eastern sides; and yet, more recently, a strip three rods wide on the south. In this last addition was buried George J. Walker, in eighteen and other graves and been made there since that date, but this annex is too steep to be suitable for burying purposes and to make matters worse, slopes to the west so the foot of the grave is higher than the head. This same objection applies to the eastern side of the graveyard proper, except a part of the northeast corner, where the flat runs around nearer level.

It is fenced around partly with plank and partly with iron palings and the Walker Annex is separated by a board fence.

The northern side is shaded by magnificent spreading beeches, a part of the forest primeval, whose trunks are scarred with rudely carved names and dates, probably reaching back seventy-five, eighty and ninety years, but all the older ones and "grown off" and become illegible.

I know of no prettier buiral place in the county, or indeed anywhere, although there are many having a finer location, but lack alas, the trees and shade.

On nearly an acre and a quarter of land, I counted more than forty-five large trees. There were beech, elm, ash, sycamore, oaks and one pine.

The sycamores and ashes are eight to twelve inches in diameter and grow mostly in the southern or new part of the cemetery.

I have frequently visited this hallowed spot and delight to ramble among its shady solitudes.

One evening in November, 1894, Mr Peden of Beatty's Run, and myself, spent an hour in wandering through its silent walks.

In August, 1904, I visited it again, finding the Sexton, an old Frenchman named Fleau (Fla-o) at work, putting a new base rock to a small headstone.

He was very communicative, but talked with such a burr, I found it difficult to understand him. His speech was quite broken, but had no suggestion of the nasal twang, supposed to belong to the French people.

He said he was born in France, came to New York in 1852, stayed there one year and then came to Jackson County.

I came again on the seventeenth of September and spent some time among the graves copying many of the inscriptions and making note of the tombstones and monuments.

I tried to get the dates of all the older graves as well as those of the pioneers and old people who had been buried in more recent years.

Most of the earlier graves are marked with simple flagstones, sometimes with letters and dates rudely chiseled on them or with elaborately carved headstones of dressed sandstone, many of which looked quite well and, to my mind, more becoming than costly marble and granite monuments. Some have no mark whatever and the eye can scarcely trace their shadowy outlines under the trees.

Again, there is another class of simple marble slabs, weather stained and grey, which have lost the cold, glaring whiteness of new marble, and lastly, the more imposing monuments, which have become fashionable since the opening of the railroad to Ripley in 1891.

As before stated, the first grave was that of Mrs. William Parsons.

The second is marked by a low flagstone marked "P.S. 1821". Near it, a similar stone isrked "M.S. 1822" and yet another "C.S. March 12, 1829".

These are all short graves and are occupied by children or possibly grand children of Jacob Starcher.

The next settler in this silent sleeping place, was a young Methodist Preacher, who was drowned in 1830 in trying to ford the creek, where the Harpold Bridge now stands, two miles above town. His body was found, caught in some drift lower down the creek and his faithful horse, standing by the ford, waiting for his master's return.

The unfortunate young man's name was Harry Ripley and he had his marriage license in his pocket at the time of his death. The neighborhood was so impressed with this sad occurrence that when next year, the county seat was laid out, it was given the name of Ripley in honor of the young minister.

Jacob Starcher, who bought the Parsons' farm about 1812, may justly be called the "father of Ripley". He was long, one of the leading citizens of the vicinity, but he has been slumbering under the leafy beech trees almost as many years as his age when laid by loving hands in their shadows.

Here, he plowed and he sowed, he reaped and he mowed and he hunted the deer, bear and other wild game, when those who are hoary with the frosts of many winters were yet unborn. I sat in the pleasant shade on the porch of the Hotel Hassler, facing the Court House and tried to call up the picture of the old man, following his wooden turnplow or old shovel, back and forth across the public square, the thronging streets and the busy blocks beyond; clad in homespun flax or buckshin, hunting shirt, breeches and moccasins, while his horses harness was made of cornshucks, rawhide and bark.

He died on the seventh of January 1838 at the age of seventy years, his wife Annie Starcher, nine years his junior, lived to the same age, dying nine years later and was laid by his side.

Annie Starcher, born January 3, 1777, died July 8, 1847, aged seventy years and six months.

Of their children, who are buried here, Abraham Starcher was born May 21, 1800 and died October 15, 1871, aged seventy-one years and four months.

His wife, Margaret Evans Starcher, born March 27, 1798 and died August 20, 1852, aged fifty-four years and four months.

Abraham Starcher's wife was Margaret Evans, a daughter of Squire Evans, who lived on Mill Creek below Ripley, where town of Evans is now located.

Mark Starcher, who was a soldier in the Union Army, and over whose grave waves a bleached and faded Union flag planted there on Decoration day, was born in 1822 and died March 27, 1867.

His wife, Mary (Williamson) Starcher, who is buried at his side, died in November 1890, aged 70 years and five months. He was Abraham's son.

Daniel Starcher, son of Abraham, died July 27, 1846, aged twenty one years five months. He was never married.

William Starcher was a son of Jacob and brother of Abraham. He died January 19, 1872, aged sixty-two years seven months. He married an Evans. His son, Robert Startcher, was the father of the Starcher Brothers who were in the store on the corner, in Ripley.

There is a James Starcher, who died March 1862, aged thirty-eight years ten months. His wife, Mary, died in 1870, aged seventy, if I made no mistake in copying the inscriptions.

Jacob Starcher, Jr, died July 27, 1857, aged sixty-two years two months. The tall marble slab belonging to this grave was down and broken in twain. He was brobably a brother of Abraham.

John C. Starcher, born October 9, 1796, died Sept. 8, 1851.

R.E. Starcher, born September 2, 1827.

Fanny Starcher, born January 3, 1777, died July 8, 1847.

Jacob Starcher Sr's wife was a half sister to Hannah (Staats) Ables and a daughter of Abraham Staats. Her mother is said, by some, to have been a Flesher.

There is, in the Starcher row in the northwest corner of the graveyard, two graves of sons of J.A. and J.E. Maginty. William, who died at nineteen and B.R., who died at twenty-three. One or both died in 1852 and they may have been relatives of the Starchers.

Sarah, wife of William Starcher, died January 6, 1883, aged eighty years ten months.

Ann, daughter of William and Sarah Starcher, died in 1856, aged sixteen years.

Priscilla, daughter of William and Sarah Starcher, died in 1857, aged twenty-eight years, eleven months.

Another pioneer, who lies resting beneath one of the beech trees of the Ripley graveyard, is William Bonnet, who settled on Mill Creek, one and a half miles above town before 1816. How long before, I have not been able to ascertain. He came from Hacker's Creek. William Bonnet was born September 14, 1774 and died July 10, 1858 aged eighty-three years seven months. He was famous for his physical strenght. He married a sister of John Harpold, who settled by him on Mill Creek several years later. His wife, Barbara (Harpold) Bonnet was born February 3, 1784, and died August 20, 1867, aged eighty-three years and six months. Like Jacob Starcher's wife, she lived to nearly the same age of her husband, when he died.

Barbara Bonnet was a very tall woman. They had several children, one of whom was named Matilda and she married a Craig. She did not live long, dying in 1859, in her twenty-third year. Matilda, her father and mother, lie side by side on the left of the path in the central part of the graveyard.

Martha Turner, widow of Thomas Turner, died March 22, 1886, in her ninetieth year.

Benjamin Wright, son of Benjamin Wright, Sr. the pioneer miller of Jackson County, the first clerk of the County Court of Jackson County, died October 1875 at the age of seventy-two years eight months, and was buried in the central part of the graveyard.

His son, E.B.Wright, commonly known as "Bib" Wright and Elizabeth A. Wright, who died May 21, 1871, aged thirty-two years four months. E.B died at the age of eixty-eight years, about 1899.

Upon the death of Jacob Starcher in 1838, that part of the Parsons farm, which he still possessed, including the house and orchard at the mouth of Scyamore, was sold to Thomas Graham of Mineral Wells, Wood County. Graham was an Irishman by birth and a soldier of the War of 1812. He returned, I think, to Wood County and died at the advanced age of ninety-six years and six months.

Some of his children are buried at Ripley. Elen E. Graham, died February 5, 1849, aged seventeen years. Clermont Graham, and infant son, died July 12, 1846 at one year and one month of age.

Viola Vail, daughter of Isaiah and Louisa (Graham) Vail, his grand child, died in 1850 when a year old, and Sarah Vail, her sister died in 1875, at the age of twenty years. These also rest in the central part of the burying ground.

Stephen Straley, who moved on to the Ables Farm on Sycamore, from Hacker's creek, was born February 4, 1806 and died July 8, 1885, aged seventy-nine years five months. Mary Straley, his "gude wife" who sleeps by his side, was born May 22, 1815, and died March 2, 1879. Their sons, William, deceased July 30, 1865 at twenty-five years of age and George L. Straley, died April 1866 at the age of twenty years are also buried with them. These are in the nothern quarter.

Moses Doolittle was born in Morgantown in May, 1802 and died at Ripley, July 2, 1877, aged seventy-five years one month.

Susan Seaman Doolittle, his wife was born May 3, 1801, in Monongalia County. She was the daughter of David and Elizabeth (Bord) Seaman and they lived a while on Reedy and at a later date on Mill Creek, at what is known as the old Wiblin Place. The family record says she was born May 3, 1799 and died January 12, 1878.

Keziah Cunningham is another old pioneer, whose ashes rest peacefully under the beech shade of the Ripley burying ground. She was the mother of Joel and James Cunningham, and departed this life February 26, 1853 at the age of eighty-six years.

At the grave is a sandstone slab with flower design carved on it. Her maden name was Keziah Barnet. There is, by the side of Grandmother Cunningham, a nameless grave. I do not know whether it be one of her family or not. Possibly it is her husband, James Cunningham, who lived and raised his family in Pendleton County.

Leola Bell, daughter of B.R. (Roth) and M.J. Cunningham, died in 1869.

John D. Keeney, a Methodist Preacher and one of the first settlers of the middle fork of Reedy, where he made the first improvement on the Deems place, and his wife, Rachel, daughter of William Burdett are buried here. John D. Keeney, died June 10, 1855 in his sixty-sixth year and Rachel Keeney died September 11, 1861 in her sixty eighth year.

Another monument informs the reader that Charlotte, wife of M. D. Armstrong, died May 10, 1879 at the age of fifty-six years and six months.

William L. Bird, Attorney At Law, died on May 19, 1850 at the age of twenty-five. The above inscription looks rather odd, somewhat like a business card or advertisement.

Another curious inscription is that on the headstone of another lawyer, Lys Flesher, a son of Andrew Flesher, which inform the world that Ulysses W. Flesher was born January 28, 1831. Graduated at the Ohio University in 1851. Admitted to the bar in 1853. Died August 4, 1869.

John B. Moyle was born August 2, 1806 and died April 6, 1896 aged eighty-nine years eight months. "He was a pioneer and died at Anderson's Hotel. He was a 'Squire Murrill' and was connected with land matters in Jackson County".

An old gray weatherbeaten headstone bears the inscription: "Here lies the body of Harriet Wetzel, wife of John Wetzel, born December 12, 1817 and died the seventh of March 1845".

This woman was one of the Lowther family of Harrison County. Col. Robert Lowther came from Harrison County to Ripley. He was the father of Harriet Wetzell and Minerva Smith. Robert Lowther died April 22, 1856, aged sixty years ten months. Born March 24, 1795, his wife Mary Lowther died in July 1851 at the age of fifty-nine years seven months. By them rests E.D. Lowther, born 1830 and died 1897 and on his grave was the flag of the Union. Harriet Lowther Wetzell, was the first wife of John H. Wetzell, who, it is claimed, was a grandson of one of Lewis Wetzell's brothers. Hon. Robert Wetzell of Ravenswood is their son. Robert Lowther was Postmaster at Ripley for several years. Major Henry Harpold's wife, Judge Joseph Smith's wife, Mrs. Wetzell, Andrew and "Dunk" (E.D.) Lowther were his children. He was a member of the Ripley bar in 1831 and helped in laying off the town.

Toward the northeastern corner of the graveyard, some of the Ables family are buried, but I do not have any of the dates.

Martin Ables was the first settler at the Straley Farm on Sycamore. His sons, Jacob and Martin, came with him when he moved from Greene County, Pennsylvania. His son, Alec Ables married Hannah, daughter of Abram and Sarah (Tilghman) Staats and lived a while at the mouth of Sycamore and afterwards at the Greer farm on Sycamore where William Carney now resides, and his daughter, Margaret married William Staats and lived on Sycamore.

William G. Ayers came from Pocahontas County to Ripley. He died March 23, 1848, aged forty-seven years nine months. Phebe J. Ayers, his wife, died January 18, 1850 aged twenty-five years eleven months. (This was probably his second wife.) John Ayres, son of W.G. died in 1857, aged twenty-four. Twin daughters of W.G. and J. Ayers died 1848, infants. "Grig" Ayers, father of Will was probably son of W.G. Ayers. J.L. Armstrong, who was born in Lewis county in 1829 and married an Ayers. He came to Ripley in 1849. James Armstrong, died November 28, 1879 in his seventy-sixth year.

John Harper came with the Ayers family and is said to be related in some way. He is said to have been an old bachelor and rich. "Bill" and "Jim" Harper were his brothers. The Harpers are said to have owned the White Sulpher Springs at one time. John Harper died September 30, 1852 aged fifty years. James P. Harper died January 15, 1865 aged sixty-one years.

Another informant, Mary Rader, said that old John Harper made the first improvement on the Abe Rader farm, near Centennial. That Abe Rader went with his father to Harpers for a yoke of cattle about 1825. The bottoms were then all in heavy timber. Rader bought the farm of Bill Harper, who got it from John, his father.

John C. Richardson was a Baptist Preacher and built up the Baptist Church in Ripley. He lived in Spottsylvania County during the war, came to Ripley about 1873 and lived most of the time in town. Before his death he moved into a house in the cove, near where Isaac Spears lives. He died March 1889, at the age of sixty-two and is buried at Ripley. By him, lie his sons, James Richardson, who died in 1875 at the age of twenty-one and William Richardson who died in 1877 at the age of twenty-six.

Minerva J. wife of J.C. Wolfe, born May 15, 1823, died June 12, 1852. John M. son of J.C. and M.J. Wofe died 1861. Martha J. daughter of J.C. and M.J. Wolfe, died in 1847, an infant.

Eliza, wife of J.G. Kapp was born in 1842 and died 1877. She was a daughter of Geo. Landfried.

John Rice died September 19, 1852, aged twenty-one.

Philip Landfried died in 1904 and was buried in the old graveyard, He was born in Germany seventy-five years ago and came to this section within his nineteenth year. H was born August 9, 1829.

Robert R. Riley, a son of Matson Riley, was born in Wood County, Virginia, March 21, 1812 and came to Jackson County in 1832. He engaged in teaching school. His brothers John and Amos were also teachers. Later, he married Elizabeth, daugher of Peter Cleek, who lived on Mill Creek, just above Ripley. They are buried in the Ripley Graveyard. Rebecca, daugher of R.R. and E. Riley, died November 14, 1839 at the age of eight months. Nancy A. daughter of R.R. and E. Riley, died August 15, 1852, age nine months. Caroline J. daughter of R.R. and E. Riley died September 29, 1849, aged one year and ten months. Also, an infant son died June 30, 1852 at fifteen days old. The Rileys are buried on the flat under the beech tree in the center of the graveyard.

Tabitha, daughter of Jacob Staats, and wife of Joseph H. Bowland, died September 12, 1845 at the age of twenty-one years, eleven months. Had she lived until the seventeenth, five days longer, she would have been twenty-two years old. Her birthday was September 17, 1823. The tombstone is a sandstone rock and is badly split and shelled off.

In the northwest corner, under some beech trees are two moss-grown, weather beatern marble slabs, about three and a half feet high, eighteen inches wide and two and a half inches thick. One of which is removed from the grave and leaning against a tree, it bears the figure of a weeping willow and below it the inscription "John G. Starcher, born October 9, 1796 died Sept. 8, 1851." The other is at the head of a grave, the top of it is a sunken space on which, in relief is the figure of a rose. The inscription is "Mary Ann, daughter of J. And G. Starcher, born May 22, 1820, died August 22, 1837. Her age was seventeen years and three months." Taken away in the bloom of youth, there are passing few of her playmates living, and a child born when she was laid to rest under the old beech tree would now be old. In the same row are the graves of the Starcher children, P.S. Starcher 1821 and M.S. Starcher, 1822. Squire Robert E. Starcher, died March 11, 1904 aged seventy-four years. He was a son of William Starcher and grandson of Jacob.

F. Leon Clerc was born at Motiers, Switzerland, October 26, 1845 and died February 6, 1886. He married Mary, daughter of George Smith. Nehemiah Smith, December 14, 1805 and died April 28, 1859. Rachel, wife of N. Smith, December 21, 1805 and died February 15, 1865.

On a sandstone slab, four feet high, sixteen inches wife and three inches thick, which is in a perfect state of preservation, is this legend, nicely carved: "Catharine, wife of John D. Riley, died April 1832 aged twenty years."

Another slab of sandstone, somewhat smaller is inscribed "On Memory of Elizabeth R. King, Was born December the 6th, 1823 and died November the 30, 1835. Query, who was she"?

There are many costly and showy monuments in the graveyard. Among the finest, is the Armstrong monument in the upper central part of the rounds and that of F. Leon Clerc, who was born in Switzerland, in the southeast quarter.

There were several flags planted on graves in different parts of the graveyard, showing the loyalty of those who sleep beneath.
