12-4-2010 - Message from Ron Walker, absolamjoe@sympatico.ca or ronw@bell.net - I have a question about the Burch Ridge Cemetery. On the Marshall County WVGenWeb site this is the name that you have given the cemetery and A. B. Watkins and Elizabeth Watkins are listed as being buried there. On the A. B. Watkins death certificate it lists has burial in the Wayne Cemetery, and on the Elizabeth Watkins death certificate it lists her burial in the Woodland Cemetery. Do you know if the Burch Ridge, Wayne, and Woodland Cemteries are all the same cemetery? Also is the cemetery you list as the Wayne-Simms Cemetery connected with these cemeteries? You also have Benjamin and Lydia Wayne buried in the Burch Ridge Cemetery. According to the Elizabeth Watkins' death certificate these are her parents.- I found the death certificate of Curtis Carl Watkins who is the son of Alonzo (A. B.) and Elizabeth Watkins. He died May 21, 1956, and it lists his burial in the Wayne Cemetery-Burch Ridge.
