Pate Cemetery (Priestley Cemetery)
Lincoln County, West Virginia

Lat: 38° 14' 45"N, Lon: 81° 50' 04"W

Submitted by Lisa L. Luther, Feb 22, 2005 [charleywest@hotmail.com] Total records = 53.

From the Alum Creek/Yawkey/Hamlin exit on Corridor G (119 South), turn right. Take the very first left, which should be Priestley Ridge. On Priestley Ridge take the 5th road on the left. There aren't any signs indicating a cemetery

Park as soon as you get off the Priestley Ridge road and walk up the hill. It is a very short walk and the cemetery is small.

This cemetery was originally named the "Pate Cemetery" and it began in the early 1900s. The oldest legible stone now is Johnson Pate, d. 1932. The cemetery is also known as the "Priestley Cemetery", probably due to the number of the Priestley family interred here and the location.

The inscriptions listed here are abbreviated versions of the actual text on the headstones. All military markers will be noted with � at end of entry.

I walked and read this cemetery in October of 2004.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
