West Virginia Advocate, Oct 12, 1987: "UNIQUE, HISTORICAL GRAVES" - Ruins of the lost but rediscovered, unique grave site of John Wolford and his wife, Catherine. The Revolutionary War veteran's will stipulated that a good stone-wall be built to enclose the graves; a solid, flat stone be placed on the wall so as to further enclose the graves; and that a wooden, frame roof with wood shingles be built on top of the flat stone and the wall. He further instructed his executors to build a wooden plank fence around the entire Wolford family graveyard and directed that the cemetery was to be forever maintained in good condition. Now, the grave sites of John Catherine are ruins and the entire cemetery is hidden by thick, almost impenetrable briers, saplings and trees".
