Alexandra had a brother, William H. West, that died at 5 months old. Died Oct. 21, 1853, Teays Valley, Putman Co. WV. He was born in Putman Co.

From a source, I found out that some of the graves from this cemetery was moved to the Ronda cemetery. There is no marker for Alexandra, so she may have been moved. I don't know if Charles was burried here or not. If anyone knows for sure, please e mail me and let me know.

I just posted photos of all existing memorials in the Dry Branch
cemetery. Just wanted to let you know that there are no monuments there
for Burl Pomeroy #25259209, nor Alexandria Garrett #25254952.
Either they did not have monuments, or may have been moved by State to
make room for Turnpike.
The story is that there is another cemetery on Dry Creek. This one was
originally called the Hensley cemetery.
Graves that were moved went to either the other Dry Creek cemetery, or a
cemetery at Sharon.
