Nicholas County Historical Society Cemetery Project
Date 2013/3/21 19:39:59 | Topic: General Interest
|Nicholas County Historical Society is seeking to locate and document every cemetery and burial site in Nicholas County, with the goal being to publish a book of Nicholas County Cemeteries and Burial Sites by September 2013. We have nearly, if not more than, 500 documented sites to date.|
We have been in, on, over, through, nearly every hill, hollow, cow pasture, woodland, knoll, home place, in the county.
We are seeking to wrap up our research and foot/field duty by June, and begin organizing the format of the book.
I would appreciate your help with some remaining sites. Would you have information, directions, names, and dates for any of the following?
1.Scott-McAvoy cemetery in Craigsville/Cottle area?…(I believe there is a McCoy cemetery in Upper Glade, Webster County.)
2. Butler graves off of road to Holcomb? (from Hinkle Mtn. presumably?)
3. Spencer-Taylor cemetery?
4. Andrew-Russell cemetery?
5. Jackson Family site in yard near Craigsville?
6. Lambert Cemetery near Craigsville?
7. Fork Mountain: Spencer cemetery?(I may check with Frank Spencer about this.)
8. A 16-year-old girl site? (may be Richwood area)…
Thanks for what you might be able to do. Respectfully, Gerald E. Dotson firstname.lastname@example.org
