Quaker/Mt Olive Cemetary
Quaker and Mt Olive Cemetery are the same. If you go past it about a mile or so you come to the Old School Cemetery. Can also get there from Hacker Creek Road. Hope this helps.

Bethlehem Cemetery
Thank you for letting me know you could find no headstone for Sarah Austin's memorial. Her death certificate states this is the cemetery of burial, but sometimes death certificates are incorrect. Perhaps she is buried there and no stone was ever placed. I thank you for your efforts and information.

Don, I want to thank you so much for the photos that you took of Olaf "Mutt" & Idella Hawkins, Glenn & Ruby Hawkins & Robert Ray & Edwina Kisner. They are brothers and sister to my sister in laws family tree. I have just finished a 1 year project for her locating the family of her mother. She is the decendent of the Solomon & Nancy Wolfe Pratt family that now live in Iowa. I was able to trace it back from present to 1390 and with your help, like they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. I have been a member of Find A Grave for many years. This was the first time I had to use it in this manner. Again thank you for a great job. Linda Gasper

I was thinking about you yesterday.

I will give caretaker of cemetery a call tomorrow and see if he knows where the marker is or if there still is one.

Thanks for your effort.

Going to work on Masontown Cemetery this week. Look at your info and mine and see what I am missing. I know the records for the cemetery need cleaned up. I will in WV for at least two weeks in July and hope to spend a day or two at Masontown and to start cleaning up the Bretz Cemetery.

Thanks for all you have done!! It is greatly appreciated!!

RE: Mount Olive/Old Quaker
I did a little exploring last weekend around these cemeteries. There are two cemeteries. Find A Grave lists the smaller one as Mount Olive Old School Baptist Church Cemetery. The cemetery itself does not have a sign. It is obviously an older one that has not been in use, although it is not in too bad of shape. It is closer to Hacker's Creek Road. The Find A Grave map location is pretty close, of not correct.
The second Cemetery, the one by the church, has two signs. the entrance, which is by the church says Mount Olive and the sign on the back side on Cherry Hill road says, "Old Quaker Cemetery." You can kind of see the first sign in the picture "CAC" posted in 2011. The find a Grave map of this one is slightly off. If you move your map so that the marker is in the upper right corner, then the cemetery is the green spot in the lower left. I hope that helps.

RE: Mount Olive/Old Quaker
I think they are the same. The photo requests from Mt. Olive that I found were in the Quaker Cemetery. I'll have to look in to whether or not there is another cemetery in that area that could be Mt. Olive.
