I enjoy going to the cemeteries and looking for gravestones of my family and looking for requests for other people. It makes me sad to see some stones in bad shape and some cemeteries so overgrown with weeds and not taken care of. I work full time, but I try to get to the cemeteries on my days off when I can. I spend many hours looking for other members requests. I don't do it just to get the credit for a request, I have added more photos to memorials than what shows on my credit for doing requests. I really enjoy looking for the gravestones and it is very relaxing to me. I love the old cemeteries. |
Note: The Dement Cemetery in Ohio County, WV is a very old cemetery located on private property. Many of the stones are very difficult to read and some dates may not be exactly right. Let me know of any corrections.
The Dallas Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Dallas, WV in Marshall County is another old cemetery with many old stones. Some of the names and dates may not be correct. Many of the stones are difficult to read. Let me know of any corrections. I have found many gravestones of people that are not on the list in the cemetery books at the library or some with the names that are not spelled correct.
NOTE!! When you looking for someone buried in the Dallas, WV area there are four cemeteries in this area. Some of these cemeteries are being listed in both Ohio & Marshall County on Find-A-Grave so check both counties when you are looking for someone buried in this area. A lot of the death certificates have Dallas Cemetery which makes it that more confusing to find someone. A person I was researching had Sand Hill Cemetery on his death record but he his buried in the Dallas Presbyterian Church Cemetery, I think this area may have been considered part of Sand Hill at one time.
The four cemeteries are:
1. Dallas Cemetery (also known as West Union Cemetery and Haneytown Cemetery). This was the first cemetery in this area about 1828. This is the very old.
2. Dallas Presbyterian Church Cemetery (this church was called West Union Presbyterian Church back in 1831. The cemetery was there before the church was built. It too is called West Union Cemetery & Haneytown Cemetery).
3.Dallas Methodist Church Cemetery started in 1855. (This cemetery is called Dallas Cemetery too) To keep things less confusing I refer to call it as the Dallas Methodist Church Cemetery. Some believe this cemetery is in Ohio County so it is under both Ohio & Marshall County.
4. Mount View Cemetery currently still in operation to this day.I consider these four cemeteries in Marshall County and that is how they are listed on the Marshall County web-site.So just check both counties when you are looking for someone's burial place in this area.. Peace to All!!
Please do not add any Death Certificates to the memorials I have made. Thank you.

Thank you for the corrections!
|Jeff Hall||Thank you|
Many thanks for the excellent headstone photo added for PFC Russell R Sawyer, great work!
|Anna||Re: Margaret Rempe Hannan|
I have created a memorial for her in Wheeling also and made a link from one to the other memorial. If you donít mind, please add the same photo to the memorial in Mt. Calvary that you have on her husbandís memorial. I have put in a photo request for the cemetery in Marietta, so hopefully the mystery will be solved.
Thanks for all you do and all the help you have given me. I appreciate it very much. (If you have any other suggestions, just let me know.)

Thank you so much!

Thank you for adding pictures of the grave markers on Florance Hope Dinsmore's memorial site (St. Clairsville Union Cemetery) #137508400. However, you added a picture of Florance Hope's son, who is also Florance Hope Dinsmore. I have added a site for the son and also for Belle R. Dinsmore, wife and mother. Please remove the picture of the son's marker and add it to his memorial site. Also, please add the marker photo for Belle's site. Thank you!

Thank you so very, very much for using your valuable time to locate and photo this marker. Locating this marker was no small task given the large number of burials. Very best regards,
