Looking for graveyards in Pocahontas County

Marlinton, WV – A small group of volunteers is slowly gathering steam on a project that may never be completed within any of their lifetimes, if in fact if it is ever completed at all. They know the work will never really be finished. They expect that.

The Pocahontas County Genealogy Group has chosen to focus this year on creating an inventory of cemeteries in Pocahontas County before they disappear from memory.
