Newport Cemetery


Newport Cemetery Gate 001.jpg

The first burial in the Newport Cemetery was Nathaniel Little on November 20, 1808.  Many of the stones were cut by Frank Valentine.  Later years, his son Ben Valentine, was the stone cutter.  The last stone Ben cut was his own.  There was also a small cemetery located on the property now owned by Paul Berga.  It contained many early settlers' graves.  Dr. George Gale said his grandparents were buried there.  They were moved to the Hammett Cemetery at Willow Island, W. Va.  Others were moved to the Newport Cemetery.

To forget one's ancestors is to be a brook without a source, a tree without root.
