I'm still trying to verify the name, but from what I've heard this is the "Methodist" or "Old Methodist" cemetery. If this is true, from other stories I've heard, Thomas Carr is buried in an unmarked grave in this cemetery. Even if it is not true, this cemetery is still a cool little cemetery. It's a block north of Main Street in St. Clairsville. You can't miss it if you drive up Newell Ave. Also, there is a gravel area like 10 feet from the cemetery so it's easy to access.
When I was a senior in high school, I used to cut through this cemetery on my way too and from school because I lived a bit north of it. Back then I never really stopped to look around at how cool this cemetery is.
I never knew this statue existed. This is really odd because the cemetery is really tiny.
Two Revoluntary War veterans. The one on the left was at the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown. This goes to show you that cool history can be found anywhere.
Here are two prime examples of further research is needed. I wonder if the guy on the left died as the result of battle or in the service of the country. I've never seen the brass logo before. I really want to know what it means.
