Take Rt. 95 out of South Parkersburg. Turn left onto Rt. 68 South and
go .6 miles to Lake Washington Road. Turn right onto Lake Washington Road
and go .3 miles. There will be a sign on the right side of the road for
the Bethel Baptist Church. The cemetery is on the hill behind the Church.
This cemetery is still active. It is owned and maintained by the Bethel
Baptist Church, organized in 1847. The lower section next to the Church
contains the oldest burials. Many of the stones in this section are
very weather worn. Some are broken and have fallen over. A few of the
older stones have had replacement markers set next to them.
Historian, John A. House noted a few stones that I was unable to locate/read.
These will be noted with an asterisk (*). Complete accuracy of this
transcription cannot be guaranteed, please verify with other sources.
I walked and transcribed all existing stones in this cemetery
on May 17, 2004.
