RE: Joseph Maxian
A term grave is sort of like leasing a plot instead of purchasing it. After the end of the term, any marker that is there is removed and the plot is eligible to be sold for purchase. In this cemetery there were alot of term graves due to the lower cost. Sometimes the family purchased the same or another plot at the end of the term, but most did not. The term grave option ended in this cemetery in the 40's & early 50's.

As far as the remains--I have heard that in a term grave, the burial was lower in the plot.

In this cemetery, the block and plot numbers are a different sequence of numbers in a particular section for the term graves.

Hope this helps.

RE: Thomas V Butler and wife Nora
Found the right couple. They are buried in Section F, Lot 395. I will take the other photo off and add the new picture of the correct marker.

I have both of their death certificates. I will stop by the cemetery and double check their location.

Hi Jan!

It's not like you to have a memorial without a photo request, so wanted to let you know there is now a photo for her. I would have never seen it if not stooping over to pick up a broken bottle.

RE: Black Cemetery, Greasy Ridge
West Virginia archives lists parents as Gerald and Geraldine Toler Blair. Babies were born and died in West Virginia.

RE: Black Cemetery, Greasy Ridge
I know the cemetery and I believe it is still an active cemetery as far as burials. I guess there would have to be a contact person but I do not who it is. One source might be an obit which would list the parents. You can obtain it from the Cabell County WV library.
