Frank Smith Cemetery

I visited this cemetery on two different occassions, once on March 07, 1999 and again on March 12, 1999. I had to break the visit up into two because it was so cold! This cemetery is beautiful and well cared for! It is easy to get to as it is located just off Rt. 80 just across the Russell County line in Buchanan County. If you are traveling from Honaker toward the Big A - Council area the cemetery is not more than a half mile from the RusCo., BuCo boundary lines. Turn left up a dirt road, and this turn if one looks to the right of them would be the Big A Mtn. Free Christian Church which is pastored by the Rev. Clyde Lambert. This cemetery is very close Rt. 80. It was hard to chart because many of the names you will find there, are the names of living people who have chosen this, at some point as the place they wish to be buried. Many of them are my family!

Some of the info has been added by me, and some just because it is personal knowledge.

* means that I either know or believe them to be living.

Marker I can’t read the name, but think I made out some of the dates which I believe to be December 1945, and immediately below that December 09, 1985. This marker sits next to the following grave.

Malvia E. Ball
May 16, 1921 - May 18, 1980

{according to my own records this Malvia E. Ball was the daughter of Ira Columbus Murdock and Julia Tiller Murdock. She Malvia was married to Rufus Hurley Ball, although, the above marker I couldn’t read is probably Malvia’s and Carl Owens son Lee Roy Owens who was born December 04, 1945, and died December 09, 1985. The dates I was able to read, all fit with information I already had.}
