A few years ago my husband and I walked to the top of the hill to the Williamson Cemetery, off Pond Run, Belleville, Wood County, West Virginia. The cemetery had been mowed and cleared of brush. Today, we returned to the cemetery -- to find only five graves. The cemetery is overgrown with tall briars. Among those buried there -- Elizabeth Anderson died Nov. 4, 1862; Samuel Anderson 1815-1857; Margaret Arnold Mar. 1, 1852-Dec. 15, 1873; Caleb Bailey died 1876; Lottie Campbell died 1918; Anna J. Farnsworth Williamson 1873-1945; Elizabeth E. Kimes 1853-1873; Sarah F. Kimes died 1873; John Kinnaird 1836-1854; John Lane 1846-1850; Nathan Lane 1849; M M Mills 1837-1863; John C. Petty 1892-1918; Elizabeth Ann Sheets Smith1846-1929; James Smith 1843-1915; John Smith 1822-1890; Laura M. Williamson Smith 1876-1899; Pearl Smith 1886-1962; Effie Belle Williamson Staats 1886-1923; Anna Josephine Walker 1873-1945 new monument; Charles A. Walker 1866-1935; Infant Walker 1898; Phillip Walker 1887-1905; Sarah M. Williamson Walker 1860-1885; Sarah C. Watkins died 1849; Amanda Ellen Flinn Williamson 1845-1921; Earl Williamson died 1899; Flora Williamson died 1848; Frances Ellen Williamson 1854-1856; Henry Williamson 1839-1903; Howard Newton Williamson 1878-1882; James Williamson died 1865; Jesse Williamson 1882-1903; Luella Williamson 1868-1887; Margaret Lane 1826-1900; Mary Williamson born 1873; Maud Williamson 1873-1873; Rev. Samuel Williamson (who had been a post master at Belleville) 1786-1870; Samuel Williamson died 1872. There may be others. Several monuments are barely visible among the briars -- but still standing. The above information was furnished to me by a historian of the Williamson family.
