Search Messenger Cemetery:

The cemetery is located "on Route 7, between Kingwood and Terra Alta. According to some old notes of my great grandmother's "Land for Cemetery was donated by James Messenger and Lydia Messenger, his wife; and, James S. Myers and Mariah Myers, his wife. Sometimes called Arnold Cemetery. John Sanders, Son-in-law of James Myers looked after the cemetery for several years but Frank Arnold was closer to the cemetery, had a key and would let people into the cemetery. Apparently this association led to some individuals calling it the Arnold cemetery. the Cemetery was referred to as the Old Cemetery or Messenger Cemetery, West of Terra Alta and had been a cemetery used by the Messengers prior to the time the ground was set aside by Messenger and Myers.
