Proud graduate of Virginia Tech -- go Hokies!
Since almost all of the cemeteries in my home county of Monroe, WV, have already been logged (Matthew Broyles -- you did an OUTSTANDING JOB!), I thought it might be interesting to log some of the cemeteries in the Martinsburg, WV area. Hopefully, someone out there will find this site as interesting, useful, and rewarding in learning more about their ancestry as I have. And who knows -- I might just run across some of my own ancestors in the process. I'm trying to take pictures too -- especially of older headstones, along with those of war veterans.
Feel free to contact me for any corrections/additions to any of the information that I've entered. It would also be nice to hear from anyone who's been able to learn more about their ancestry from a grave that I've entered.

I am searching for photo of tombstone for Eleanor Reynolds. She died 1822. She was first married to Martin Wolford who died in 1780 and after his death she married a George Reynolds. It has been stated that Eleanor is buried at Reformed Cemetery in the same row as Rezin Reynolds and Jacob Wolford.
She is not listed on the findagrave website as being buried in the cemetery. Any help appreciated.
Thanks for linking her to her parents.
