RE: Hill Top Cemetery on Oak Hill, Fayette Co., WV
I found a death record in Fayette County for an Adam Johnson Dec 12, 1870, but it lists place of death as Kanawha County. Odd. Death was reported by his wife M. Johnson. That's why I thought that might be the right Adam Johnson. Doesn't give a place of burial. Cause of death was unknown. Since they were living on Loup Creek when their son died, they may have been living down close to the Kanawha/Fayette county line.

RE: Hill Top Cemetery on Oak Hill, Fayette Co., WV
Good question. Rev. Daniel Valentine "Tine" Argabright has for years been credited with establishing the cemetery. But it must certainly pre-date him since he was not born until 1877 and there is one marked grave I know of dated 1884 (Sarah Ann Wilson), when Daniel would have only been 7 years old.
There are about 6 or 7 graves marked only with rocks, and a few that have name only with no record on file for their death.
Sarah Ann Wilson as well as her parents that are also buried there, have no record of birth, marriage, or death on file in Fayette county. That is often the case when people are buried on their own property, so the Wilsons may have once owned the property.
At some point around 1898 - 1900, Tine began caretaking of the cemetery. After he died in 1932, it became known as "Hilltop Union Cemetery" and provided spaces for burial of union coal miners and their families.
I found Anthony Johnson's death record. The family was living at Loup Creek at the time of his death. That creek starts over 10 miles northwest of Oak Hill, so I can't imagine they would have brought him all the way up the mountain to Hilltop for burial. Back then, it was usual to bury folks quickly within a mile or two of their home since body preservation was an issue.
There is another Hill Top Cemetery in Fayette County, but it is only about a mile from this one, and wouldn't have really been any closer for them.
I didn't find death records for any of the others, although Fayette became a county in 1831 it appears they didn't seriously begin keeping vital records until after 1855.
I know there were members of the Johnson (Johnston) family all over Fayette, Nicholas, and Kanawha counties by 1832 since I have Johnston ancestors. Many of them moved into the area as early as 1808-1809, when the Commonwealth of VA was selling 300 acre parcels in order to encourage development of the western areas.
A woman wrote to me last year from the Midwest whose maiden name was Woodrum. She was researching burial locations of members of the Woodrum family in southern WV. She said there were very few left living in WV, so it was getting harder for her to locate burial sites. You might look on ancestry.com and see if there is any info there. I'll keep looking too.

sorry....hit the enter button by mistake.
I have two pages that are duplicates, I inherited them from an inactive member, and have requested they be removed.

Certainly, since they are in your direct family line, I think you should have the pages.

Take care,

John

Linda,

I'm sorry. I'm not trying to make you take grave information, it's just good to avoid duplicates. I don't own the other page, I would delete it if did. Generally, the first entry is the one left on the site, and you ask for a transfer.


It's your call, I was just pointing out the duplication.
