Toland, John, d.Jan. 4, 1812, "To the memory of John Toland who
I believe that Joseph Richmond and his wife Susannah Spillman
are buried in this cemetery. I know that they were large supporters
of the church. They signed the final deed for the property to be used
as a church and cemetery. They were alive in 1905 in Marshall County,
W.Va., and I cannot find them buried in any of the cemeteries in Marshall
County, W.Va. or Washington and Greene Counties in Pennsylvania. Joseph,
born 1815, in Washington County, was the son of Jacob and Jane Farley
Richmond. His wife Susannah Spillman, was born 1816, in Muskingum County,
Ohio. David Richmond, s/o Abraham, married Mary Farabee. Two of their
sons, Thomas, born, November 21,1835 died November 23,1835 and Abram
born June 30,1837 and died April 3,1838. Since the family was living
around the area of the cemetery and church, I believe they buried the
babies there with no headstones.
According to Mr. William Harsh, there is also an unidentified man in
his twenties buried in the cemetery. He was found beaten and badly decomposed
along the Majorsville Road by the Sheriff's department. Since, they
didn't know his identity, they simply buried him in the cemetery.
