Middle Ridge Baptist Cemetery
Deerwalk, Wood County, West Virginia

Lat: 39° 17' 05"N, Lon: 81° 19' 44"W

Contributed by Teresa Fordyce, Apr 17, 2003, last edited Jul 18, 2007 [s82c43@verizon.net]. Total records = 175.

Take Rt. 50 East out of Parkersburg for about 15 miles. Turn left off of Rt. 50 at the Deerwalk/Rt. 31 exit. Follow Rt. 31 for about 3 ˝ miles to Middle Ridge Road on the right. Follow along Middle Ridge Road for about 2 ˝ miles, always bearing to the right. The Church and Cemetery are on the right at the top of the hill.

This cemetery is still active and well maintained. Property was acquired by the church in the mid 1980’s to expand the cemetery. There are two separate sections to the cemetery. You will actually pass the new section on the way to the church. It is on the opposite side of the road just before you reach the church.

The church does not keep records of the burials. I was told that there are numerous unmarked graves. Some of the stones are very weather worn and difficult to read. Records should be double checked with other sources.

This transcription was done on Apr 11, 2002 from a physical examination of the stones present, when I visited the cemetery.
