Q section of Beallsville Cemetery

I spent a few hours at Beallsville Cemetery a few weekends ago taking photos of the tombstones in the Q section. I have started to post these to the website. I am also finishing up the L section (which I think is one of the largest sections of the cemetery because it seems like it is taking me forever to get that section finished !) I have over 500 new photos to post so it will take me awhile.

Once these two sections are done I will only have 2 more to go. These are relatively small and are the newer sections of the cemetery.

I have also started going through online newspaper collections trying to find obituaries and articles for as many people buried in Beallsville as I can. Hoping to make a few more trips down there in the next few months to finish up the mapping and the photographing so I can concnetrate on getting everything on the website.

As a result, my blogging has suffered lately but I haven't forgotten about it. I have started a Facebook group ( the link is on the home page of the Beallsville Cemetery page ( This blog is OK for posting things but didn't turn out to be the best vehicle for chatting and exchanging information with each other so I thought I'd try something new. We'll see how it goes.

Have a great summer !
