Cemetery Saturday

Today's stone is again from Uvilla Cemetery (link to Find-A-Grave listing) in Jefferson County WV. This is the headstone of Nelson Edwards. Nelson was a resident of Shepherdstown in 1920, at the time living in the home with his wife Adeline (who proceeded him in death according to his death certificate), a stepson and two grandchildren.

I've found a death certificate for Nelson and posted it here as well. Vital records for many counties in WV are available on line and are in a searchable database here. Nelson is not part of my family and I see no further Edwards family headstones in the cemetery.

Enjoy this exerpt of Cemetery Saturday.
