The Pocahontas Times, 4/4/02. Marlinton Town Council by Jane Price
Sharp. "At Marlinton Town Council's meeting on March 26, all
members were present plus Attorneys Martin Saffer and Walt Weiford.
First on the agenda was the matter of reserved property on Hamilton
Hill. Mr. Weiford reported he had been approached by Kenneth Ervine
that property near his late mother's home, which was designated
as a cemetery, had been quit-claimed. Mr. Weiford wasn't aware whether
or not Council had discussed the matter and he thought the Town
to be the proper party to consider it. He referred to early newspaper
articles about the old Poage Cemetery being the earliest cemetery
in the town area and the dedication of the Major William Thomas
Poage monument in 1934. There are no gravestones remaining. The
area is marked "Reserved" on the Town plat. A letter was read from
the Pocahontas Historical Landmarks Commission asking that the cemetery
property be reserved and a message from the County Historical Society
in favor of reserving the land. There was some discussion from the
audience and it was agreeable among those involved to meet to discuss
the matter. Randy Stemple spoke for his father, Ed Stemple, who
was in the hospital and couldn't be present. He has land that has
been quit-claimed and he objected and has attorney working on it.
Council voted to take a stand in favor of protecting public land
and also voted to work on the cemetery property issue."
- BG note=> According to homebuying.about.com,
Definition of a Quitclaim Deed: "A type of deed where the
property owner (grantor) transfers all interests he or she has
in a property. With this type of deed the grantor offers no
warranties or promises about the title to the new owner (grantee).
A quitclaim deed is often used to clear up defects in a title.
For instance, one property owner may have had the right to cross
another property to access his or her land. If that access is
no longer desired, a quitclaim deed can be filed to formally
give up all interests in the easement or right of way. Quitclaim
deeds are also used when an heir or former spouse gives up all
interests in a piece of real estate. "
