Oak Hill Cemetery
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.

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.
