|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This small farm cemetery is located on the property at 2697 Swinging Bridge Road in Back Creek Valley near Jones Spring in Berkeley Co., West Virginia. The first burial here is that of Jacob Snider who died in 1790. Jacob's grave marker and Rev War marker are the only existing evidence of this cemetery.
Jacob's son Abraham obtained the land and lived on it until he died in 1845. During that 55 year span Abraham had two wives that died including at least one daughter. It is believed that they may also lie there in an unmarked or missing marker grave. No evidence of these two wives has been found in any other Berkeley County cemetery.
Information from a deceased former resident indicated that there had been more graves but the markers had been trod down over the years by farm animals.
