Efaw Cemetery, Marion County, WV
Recorded and photographed by: Robert Efaw
The cemetery is very close to the top of Flat Run.
Approximately one mile back down towards route 250 from Highland Church which is
at the head of Flat Run and the border between Monongalia and Marion Counties.
Turn off route 250 up Flat Run. There is a junction of the road and a private lane
that goes off to the right to the Delaney home. On the right, there is a mailbox
near the road and the cemetery stones (which are only about 10 feet from the road).
Please keep in mind this is private land, and ask for permission at the Delaney house to
look at the cemetery.

|Other stones: In the photograph on the right, the round top stone with shoulders is actually white in color. It has been a purchased stone. The two in the foreground are hand carved from ordinary field stones. You can see also in the pictures where I marked other stones. But only the five listed above have any writing.|
|In my 30 years research to date, I have found only four verifiable burial sites for the twelve children of David Efaw and Catherine Climan. I have not yet found the burial site of David and Catherine.|
