Where are the Yoho Cemeteries?

In a number of genealogy documents about the Yoho family of West Virginia it has been difficult to determine in which Yoho family cemetery people are buried. This problem occurs because there are a number of Yoho cemeteries and any of them can be referred to as the "Yoho Cemetery."

In the files of Richard E. Henthorn and T. Vernon Anderson each West Virginia cemetery has been given a unique name which includes the first name of the male Yoho on whose land the cemetery was established. The names of the cemeteries and descriptive information is listed below.

Peter Yoho Cemetery - at Fish Creek, near Graysville, Marshall Co., WV
