TOLAND

To the memory of John Toland who died Jan. 4, 1812


NOTE FROM KAREN HUCKO:

I believe that Joseph Richmond and his wife Susannah Spellman are buried in this cemetery. I know that they were large supporters of the church. They signed the final deed for the property to be used as a church and cemetery. They were alive in 1905 in Marshall County, W.Va., and I cannot find them buried in any of the cemeteries in Marshall County, W.Va. or Washington and Greene Counties in Pennsylvania. Joseph, born 1815 in Washington County, was the son of Joseph and Mary Wharton Richmond. His wife Susannah Spillman, was born 1816, in Ohio.

David Richmond s/o Abraham, married Mary Farabee. Two of 30 June 1837, died 3 April 1838. Since the family was living around the area of the cemetery and church, I believe they buried the babies there with no headstones.

According to Mr. William Harsh, there is also an unidentified man in his twenties buried in the cemetery. He was found beaten and badly decomposed along the Majorsville Road by the Sheriff's department. Since, they didn't know his identity, they simply buried him in the cemetery.

An obit for William John Dreamer lists the following children: Minnie Dreamer, Rose Whiteman, Lottie Jones, Maria Chase, Flora Apache, Viola Lycett, Gladys Chase and Dec'd sons, Robert and William
