Hawker Cemetery

also know as the

Cunningham-Hawker Cemetery

The Cunningham Hawker Cemetery is located on the Margaret Road in Marion County, WV. It is near the community of Grangeville, in the Bingamon Creek area. This reading was started in May of 2009, by Vanessa Jane Gooden Shaw and should be considered a partial reading as the search for other unmarked burials for this cemetery is continuing. After completing several readings, I compared my lists to the WPA 1939/1940 reading and have added what was on the WPA readings (that I've not yet found stone markers for) to this list. Some of the rows are annotated with information found in death records. Burial records for this cemetery are being sought at several county court houses.

This cemetery is very well maintained. It is located directly across the road from the Consol Energy slope and beltline. After entering Consol Energy property through a gate, a small hill must be climbed and then you may enter the cemetery through a second gate. This is an old cemetery with lots of unreadable gravestones and lots of grave stones that are propped up against trees, yet mowed and trimmed around. Some stones that are still standing are also unreadable due to age and weather erosion.

The land for this cemetery was owned by Owen Hawker who donated it for a burial ground. Most death certificates list the name as the Owen Hawker Cemetery or the Hawker Cemetery, Bingamon Road. Some time in the last twenty years, the name was changed to the Cunningham Cemetery. Why the name change occurred, or who changed it is unknown. This name change has made it hard to find burial records that can be added to this reading, since there are several Cunningham Cemeteries in Marion County, WV. And some death records just contain a county and cemetery name. When possible, family members have been contacted to verify which burials belong to this cemetery.
