Buried beside her WEBB family members, Mary "Martha" WEBB WILLIAMS was the widow of Rufus Alonzo "Lonnie" WILLIAMS, sister of Edgar WEBB, mother of Edgar Rufus WILLIAMS, grandmother of Carol Sue Williams DALE. She retired after teaching 40+ years of one-room schools in Summers County, WV - Buck and Elk Knob areas. After moving into Hinton from the farm on Elk Knob, she lived in apartments in Hinton, WV. She had already made arrangements to live in the Nursing Home at Denmar, Pocahontas County, WV, and when she became unable to live by herself, resided there from about 1975 to her death in 1978. Her husband, Lonnie, who died suddenly in the 1940's, is buried with his Williams family in the Elk Knob Church Cemetery, Summers County, WV.

Mary "Martha" Webb Williams is buried to the right and about 2-3 rows back as you enter the Huffman Cemetery gate - on Little Wolf Creek, Summers County, WV. She is buried next to her brother, Edgar Webb and his first wife.

The peonies between the headstones were transplanted from the yards of the original log cabin and 2-story log house built on the homestead after her grandparents came over the mountains from Virginia in the 1800's by wagon(s) drawn by oxen. These unoccupied structures, built of 18" square hewn American Chestnut logs, were still standing in good condition (along with several farm outbuildings) in 1976. Sadly, shortly thereafter vagrants staying in the cabin and house started fires which burned down the residences.
