Dry Ridge Cemetery Dry Ridge Road Ritchie County, West Virginia

These headstone photos were taken on June 3, 2005 and this is a complete reading of all the stones in the cemetery at that time. After reviewing an earlier transcription done by someone else, it appears some stones may have been missing or covered by growth at the time of my visit. I have provided a link to that transcription at the bottom of the page. This is a small, well kept cemetery enclosed by chain link fencing. This year, someone was kind enough to take the time to make a plot map and place it at the entrance! I'd sure like to find out who it was.
Click on the person's name to see their epitaph. Click on [Photo]to see a photo of their headstone. If a death certificate was found, it is included as a link too.
