This cemetery is located on New Martinsville Ridge.  Turn right at the top of Whiteman Hill and go out the ridge for about five miles.  It is in the rear of Mt. Zion Church of Christ.  The cemetery is on the hill behind and above the church and is a steep climb.  It is not seen from the church nor the road.  There is an old road leading to it.  It is fenced and well cared for.  Additional information provided by Karen Hucko.

s/o Aaron & Rebecca Hafer Yost

In days gone by this church was refered to as "Snuff Chapel" and it is said the name started because the men would peck on their snuff boxes during the services.  It is a custom of men to tap the box gently to loosen the snuff before opening it to "take a rub".  This tapping makes a little peck sound on the tin can.

 

 

**   Renzo and Bertha had a son, Clarence, who was born premature in Harrison County,W.Va Jan 31,1916, I think maybe, he is buried here also.
