PUGH, JAMES B. - Hampshire County, West Virginia | JAMES B. PUGH - West Virginia Gravestone Photos

James B. PUGH

Capon Chapel Cemetery Cemetery
Hampshire County,
West Virginia

The inscription on the headstone says:
James B Pugh
Sept 24, 1809
June 15, 1851

It is my belief that this is a replacement stone rather than the original stone as the style and condition would indicate a much later placement, perhaps around 1920-1930. It matches a stone for Eveline S. Pugh (MOTHER) which can be found at the Indian Mound Cemetery in Romney, WV. It is possible it was placed by the last surviving (and youngest) child in the family, Susan Howard Pugh Russell, who lived in the Romney area until her death in 1937.
