Total records = 7.
The following list contain the information that I have been able
to piece together about the Bess Family Cemetery.
In the spring of 1998 I found the Cemetery located across the road
and up the hill at 2200 Poplar Fork Rd. in Putnam Co. W. Va. (Latitude
38 degree 29 minutes and a Longitude 81 degree 57 minutes) I was able
to locate 13 grave sites with field stone used as markers and some
were just sunken graves. One grave has a marker this was for the grave
of Hattie Hanshaw with the year of birth and death.
The following is a list of people that I have found to be buried
in this Cemetery information came from the Court House at Winfield,
If I can be of more help please let me know.
