A lot of the stones in the Swope plot in Oak Hill Cemetery were in bad shape. They were limestone tablets and the weather made them unreadable. There are eight  bodies there and it appears that there is one stone and no body. It looks like  Albert Asbury Swope put up a stone in memory of his father, James Asbury Swope. The Cemetery has no burial number for James Asbury Swope, therefore it appears that he is not buried there. These stones have now been replaced with new granite stones.

This is James Asbury's stone. It is in every poor shape. We do not believe he is buried here but that his son put up a memory stone here. A.A., his son, bought this lot and he was only thirteen when his father died. Jane Hull Patterson Swope is buried beside her husband, but there is no stone.

This is not a headstone, it is a recognition of being in the war.
Albert Asbury Swope does not have a headstone.



Sarah Ann Hornby Erskine Swope is buried beside her husband and her stone is in bad shape.


Henry Erskine

Henry E. Erskine, A.A.'s step son, his stone is also in bad shape. A.A. inherited the old Swope place from Henry.

Edward B. Swope is buried here but has no stone. He was 18 when he died and we believe that he was James Asbury's son.
