Warner Chapel Cemetery:

The third Church formed in Union District was the United Brethren Church in 1833, later to be known as Warner Chapel Church.  Warner Chapel is located at Tribble, WV, down Tribble Road along the Mud Lick Fork of Thirteenmile Creek, a tributary of the Kanawha River.  The chapel is named in memory of Boudridge Warner, who in the 1830s donated the land where the chapel and cemetery now stand.  Originally, the chapel housed the United Brethren (Methodist) congregation, and in the early 1990's was home to an independent Baptist congregation, and still bearing the Warner name (per April 2005 the congregation was no longer meeting on a regular basis).  

Current topographical maps incorrectly label the church as "Mt. Prospect Church", although it is possible that at one time in it's long life it was named that.  To see a topographical map of the Mud Lick Fork region, with the location of Warner Chapel identified (marked "Mt. Prospect Ch.", as noted before), CLICK HERE.  

To make donations to the Warner Cemetery Fund (for the ongoing care of the cemetery), send to: Warner Cemetery Fund, c/o Mrs. Frances Casto, Rt. 3 Box 150, Leon, WV 25123.

Key to Tombstone Listing:

(Click on the numbered links to download the tombstone photograph.  Black underlining indicates that the information is uncertain. Background notes are shown in red text and marked with a footnote reference as to their source.  In some cases, the full date of birth and/or death is given, based on source information, rather than the sometimes abbreviated text that appears on the stone itself.  Where necessary due to the ongoing disintegration of the inscriptions, the inscription is recorded here as it was read in the late 1960s and recorded in the "Mason County, W.Va. Cemetery Inscriptions" book.  The numbers alongside each individual or couple correspond to a plot diagram drawn by the author of this page, which can be viewed by clicking here.  If you would like to see an alphabetical listing by surname for this cemetery, click here.)

Harrison, John, died abt. 1835 (died of cholera - some earlier publications erroneously give his death year as 1832, but he is mentioned in a deed in 1835 as living and also had a daughter born in 1835, so his death likely occurred late that year or during a subsequent year.  It is also possible that he was buried in nearby (destroyed) Elmwood Cemetery with his parents, though this has not been proven beyond a shadow of doubt)
