|Gordon R. Rolston, b. 1949 West Virginia. My ancesters moved to WV in 1804 from Rockingham Co., Virginia.|
A few years ago two of my uncles, a cousin and myself went to the bank of the Ohio River in Wood Co., WV. where the original cemetery was located for my ggg-grandfather, William Rolston who died in 1807. The cemetery and church were abandoned in the late 1800's after many floods. The church and cemetery were moved to higher ground. A new tombstone was rerected for the many Rolston family members. We were happy to find two of the original family stones and move them to the new cemetery.
