    2. Title: Miller Cemetery Headstones
      Text: Adrienne M. Griffis reports the following headstones in the Miller Cemetery:

      Miller-Claypool Cemetery - Lost City, WV.

      CLAYPOOL, JAMES (IV) - BORN: (1730)
      DIED: 11 AUG 1811-IN THE 81ST YEAR OF HIS AGE

      CLAYPOOL, JANE - BORN:
      DIED: 02 JUN 1768

      CLAYPOOL, JOHN (M. SR.) - BORN: 26 SEP 1733
      DIED: 06 AUG 1823-IN THE 90TH YEAR OF HIS AGE

      CLAYPOOL, MARG'T - BORN: (1736)
      DIED: 26 MAR 1813-IN THE 77TH YEAR OF HER AGE

      CLAYPOOL, JAMES- BORN: 14 FEB 1701
      DIED: 09 OCT 1789

      On Wed June 23, 2004, Selma and I (JimB) went to the Miller Cemetery. I have photos of all 5 stones. The first two (from the left) are sufficiently defaced by the weather that I can't say what is inscribed on them. The remmaining three read:

      IN MEMORY OF JOHN
      CLAYPOOL WHO WAS
      BORN SEPTEMBER THE
      26th 1733.AND DIED THE
      6th OF AUGUST 1823.
      IN THE 90th YEAR
      OF HIS AGE.


      IN MEMORY OF
      JAMES CLAYPOOL
      WHO DEPARTED THIS
      LIFE AUGUST 11 1811
      IN THE 81 YEAR OF
      HIS AGE

      IN*MEMORY*OF
      MARG'T*CLAYPOOL
      WHO*DEPARTED*THIS
      LIFE*MARCH*26*1813
      IN*THE*77*YEAR*OF
      HER AGE

      (The character I represented here as * is a little centered x.

      We return June 19, 2006 to find six graves, 4 of them with small modern markers at the base of the original stones. The "headstone" of the sixth grave looks to me to footstone of the grave next to it.

      June 20, 2006 we returned and Selma found a fallen stone several feet away from the row of 5 (now 6) Claypool stones. It reads

      JANE CLAYPOOL
      DECEAS'D
      JUNE 2 1768

      which agrees with Griffis' transcription above.

      Dr. Wilmer L. Kerns, Ph.D. records the family (in Historical Records of Old Frederick and Hampshire Counties, Virginia (Revised), 1988, 1992, ISBN: 1-55613-592-0) as:

      Claypool, James, was born Feb. 14, 1701 and died Oct 7, 1789. Jane Claypool, his wife, was born in 1701 and died 1788. James Clypool Jr. was born in 1730 and died 1811. John Claypool was born in 1733 and died 1823, Margaret Dunbar was born in 1736, and died in 1813. Source: Gravestone inscriptions in family plot, Hardy County, W.Va.

      An inventory of Hardy Cemeteries lists the following:

      CLAYPOOL
      James 1730-1811
      Jas. (born in Delaware) 14 Feb 1701- 7 Oct 1789

      John (s/o Jas. CLAYPOOL) 1733-1823
