Stansbury cemetery, Brooke County, West Virginia

I visited the Stansbury private cemetery in Brooke County West Virginia and recorded as much information as I could from the tombstones that remained. The owners of the property said that several of the stones had been broken so there are probably some graves that are no longer marked. The following is what I interpreted from the stones:

These two were on the same stone:
