Mount Olive Cemetery
Walker, Wood County, West Virginia

Lat: 39°10'45"N, Lon: 81°23'03"W, Walker

Contributed by Teresa Fordyce, Apr 02, 2003, last edited Jul 18, 2007 [s82c43@verizon.net]. Total records = 227.

Located on Eaton Road about 4/10 mile from Walker. A sign for the Mount Olive Church is on the right side of the road.

This cemetery is owned and maintained by the Mount Olive Church, which are both still active.

This cemetery contains many very old stones. Many of them are very worn and difficult to read. In addition to the transcription, there are 12 graves that are marked with only rocks, concrete blocks or fieldstones. Complete accuracy of this transcription cannot be guaranteed, please verify dates with other sources.

This is a complete reading of all existing headstones from when I walked and transcribed this cemetery on Aug 06, 2002.
