Tombstone readings by Ethel Briggs. List submitted by Phyllis Slater.

This cemetery is off Rt 250, beyond Cameron, going toward Hundred, W. Va. There is a sign pointing the way to Board Tree. When you leave Rt 250, turn off on the first road to the right and the cemetery is a short distance. Well cared for and nicely fenced.

From Joseph D. Parriott of Moundsville: "The cemetery contains the bodies of many of the Irish who dug the 34 mile long tunnel and built the railroad. The tunnel was the last thing to be finished on the Baltimore to Benwood railroad, and many of the Irish stayed in the vicinity of the tunnel after it was finished. They worked on the railroad as train crew and track crewmen. A Catholic church was constructed near the cemetery in the early 1900's, but it has disappeared as has most of the people in the community."
