ESTEP CEMETERY

COLCORD, WEST VIRGINIA

A Partial Listing of the Burials in the Estep Cemetery, Colcord, West Virginia
The Estep Cemetery, located above the now closed Clear Fork High School at Colcord, Raleigh County, West Virginia is located on land which belonged to Ella Thompson Bailey Estep, the daughter of Chapman Thompson.
