Mount Olive Cemetery
Rockport, Wood County, West Virginia

Lat: 39° 05' 38"N, Lon: 81° 38' 38"W

Contributed by Teresa Fordyce, Jun 26, 2003, last edited Jul 18, 2007 [s82c43@verizon.net]. Total records = 68.

Take Rt. 68 South out of Lubeck. Turn left onto Lee Creek Road (CR #17). Follow Lee Creek to Mount Olive Ridge Road (CR #17/10). Follow Mount Olive Ridge Road for 1.8 miles, the cemetery is on the right just up over the bank.

This is an older cemetery, the last burial was in 1956. The grounds are not well kept, it being mowed only once or twice a year. Many of the stones are in poor condition. Several are broken and have fallen over. Many are very weather worn and difficult to read. Please verify with other records.

This is a complete reading of all existing headstones from when I walked and transcribed this cemetery on Jun 22, 2003.

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.
