      Jackson County, West Virginia - Rhoads Cemetery

      Submitted by Jeanie Rhodes , February, 1999

      This cemetery is just behind the Middle School. We transcribed the last 5 stones and did a quick drawing of the cemetery. The rest of the stones were bulldozed into a ditch and covered over years ago.

      The above is a reference to the RHOADS CEMETERY in Ripley, Jackson County, WV.
      The remaining stones are:

      1) Benjamin Rhoads / died Nov. 12, 1851 in the / 67th year of his age. (NOTE:
      The original stone is weathered and standing upright. At its base is a new
      granite stone with the same inscription. The new stone was added in June of
      1998.--JLR)

      2) Nancy, wife of B. Rhoads. / died Sept. 20, 1849 in the 53rd year of her age. (NOTE: The original stone is weathered and standing upright. At its base is a new granite stone with the same inscription. The new stone was added in June of 1998.--JLR)

      3) Blank stone on the ground. (from the family record of Mark Rhodes, this
      stone once read: William Rhoads, son of B & N. Rhoads / died 1844 in the 20th year of his age.)

      4) M. R. (small, rough stone, upright)

      5) Blank, small, rough, upright stone)

      You may list me as the contact on this cemetery and if there are questions I can't answer, I will forward them to Mr. Rhodes (above).

      I hope this helps someone.

      There are several 'Rock only' notations for this cemetery. Many unmarked graves, so Sarah is probably one. William and Synabeth are buried here, and Synabeth's death record states she is buried in WAH Rhodes Cemetery.
