Don, I really don't have a good answer to your question about Leona Barnett. All I know is what her death cert.#8418 says that she died 2 July 1931, & was buried at Spencer Cem. on 7-14-1931. D.C. signed by Vandale Undertaking Co., F. E. Vandale, & her attending physician, T. R. Beggs, M.D. A conflicting date of burial is listed in the Roane Co. death register for her as being buried on 5 August 1931 which is nearly a month later than the 1st date. Perhaps, just my thought, her body was actually held by Vandale Undertaking for a time and then shipped to WVU at Morgantown for medical research. After a body is used for research, then it is usually cremated. I have seen many death certificates where Vandale Undertaking held bodies not claimed by family & the death certificates not completed. Poor record-keeping... If she was in fact buried at Spencer Cemetery, then it's very possible that the grave was never marked. Many S.S.H. patients were buried in the Simmons or I.O.O.F sections of the cemetery and never marked. Sorry I'm no further help on this perplexing situation.

Recently I have been attempting to identify those individuals who died at & buried at the Spencer State Hospital Cemetery, unfortunately most of the deaths and places of burial are unmarked and/or unknown.
The Leona Barnett, Roane Co. D.C. #8418 did die at Spencer State Hospital, however her death cert. clearly states that she was buried at Spencer Cemetery, not at the hospital cemetery.
Spencer [Memorial] Cemetery is located on Parkersburg Rd. [Rte 14] just outside Spencer .

Hi Donald, I believe the Eliza Strickland that you are looking for is Eliza Stricklen.
If you check the original death certificate, last name is spelled Stricklen, buried in the Stricklen Cemetery.
Eliza Stricklen #130874867
I believe that Albert Strickland is also Albert Stricklen.
I hope this helps.

You are welcome. I knew both of the Kiddy's - such great folks!!
|Lesa Terrill Larsen||RE: Thank you :)|
Glad to help. I also added Calvin and Sally Wright since their stone was next to his. I believe Calvin is his brother and I link him to the parents. If you know this info to be incorrect, please let me know and I will fix it. :)
|April K||RE: Thank you :)|
Your welcome! So happy that I could locate them for you. It's a well-kept, safely located cemetery & since it was cloudy and breezy I didn't mind the exercise :)

I found a Dorothy Bitner, born and died in 1922. Would there be a chance this is who you are looking for? I found a few Price graves. Perhaps she didn't have a stone. If you have any more info to help me find it, I will look again.

By private, do you mean on private property? Is there someone I can contact to get permission to go there? I'll see what I can do with those coordinates. I don't have a smart phone, so I'll see if I can enlist the help of a friend.

I noticed you had taken some pictures at the Keeten Cemetery located in Blue Creek, Kanawha Co., WV. Could you provide me with the location of it?

Just wanted to touch base on your photo requests. I will be back in the area this fall and will take pictures then if they aren't fulfilled before then. My husband's great-grandparents are also in the cemetery.
