Notes

Cemetery records compiled by Shirley Cullers Miller using headstones, field/river rocks, papers of Warren Souder and Lewis Yankey, J. Robert Swank’s 1967 records, and through interviews with area residents. Notes by Shirley Cullers Miller 15 November 2002: "Cemetery is well kept. According to the size, the sunken places, bought marked tombstones and the rock tombstones, there are 25 to 30 graves in this cemetery. This is a different cemetery than the large Caplinger community cemetery near the Criders, Virginia, Post Office." Some refer to cemetery as Whetzel cemetery. Note from Pat Ritchie: " Franklin Harvey 'Frank' Freed's death certificate states that he was buried in the Caplinger Cemetery, so this plot was known as the Caplinger cemetery in 1937." In 1967 J. Robert Swank showed others buried in this cemetery which are recorded on the listings.
