Summers County WV
Relocated Cemeteries


Following are the statistics on the 26 cemeteries known to have been relocated by The Corps of Engineers during the Bluestone Dam Project. All but numbers 17, 18, and 19 were originally in Summers County, WV. Those three were in the portion of Giles County, VA above Glen Lyn. Number 16 was on the state border and may have also been in Giles County.

The Corps of Engineers logged every grave in these cemeteries before their relocation and drafted maps which showed the original cemetery layout and the records should be in their Huntington, WV office.
