Old Stone Chapel Cemetery Reading by Daniel and Elizabeth Bussey, December 26, 1998

Rt. 50 across from Parrill Hollow Road, Mineral County, Burlington, WV

 

Headstones face east with a creek running to the front of the cemetery. The cemetery is divided into two sides by a wide path with the right side being the larger of the two sections. In this section is the remainder of a stone wall or chimney with a marble plaque reading: Old Stone Chapel, 1829-1840.

When referring to right and left sides it is in facing west from the front of the cemetery.

 

As it was not possible to distinguish all rows, readings were taken in order to the best of our ability.
