MARTIN FAMILY CEMETERY
Culloden, Cabell Co., WV
[ Memorials ]


The Martin Family Cemetery was established by John William E. Martin in the early 1920's as a family burial place. A section of the cemetery was later sold to William H. Nimmo. The Martin Cemetery is located about 0.2 mile out Martin Lane, which is south of Rt. 60 in Culloden, WV.

The oldest burial is that of J. F. Bevins in June 1895; however, his grave was already on the property before W. E. Martin purchased the land. The first family burial was Ella Martin in September of 1922. There was speculation by myself as to why J. F. Bevins was the lone burial on this property in the cemetery's beginning. Upon further questioning of older family members, it was rumored that other graves lie under the roadbed of Martin Lane. I have found no proof of this statement to date.
