I cannot locate this cemetery on maps and there is no GPS info listed. Can you provide a location and/or GPS? Thanks.

Babette Ruf
Hi Louis,
I noticed that you made memorials for Louise and Rachel Ruf in Pasadena, CA. I just found Babette Ruf (1845 - 1911) buried in the same cemetery. Do you know if she is related?

Stephen Fitzwater #61238402
I believe the birth date for Stephen Fitzwater should read 7 Nov 1867. He was the first child born to George Stephen Fitzwater and Martha Hill. There seems to be an age difference between he and his wife, Ottice. 1900 Census Barbour Co., WV adds validity to this information.

RE: Rachel Ruf
It was a birthday present. She seemed a decent lady whose life was so tragically brief and deserved respect and remembrance.
