      Killdare Cemetery

      VanMeter family cemetery at Killdare, Jacob Van Metre's homestead. The cemetery is now part of a larger cemetery called Pleasant View Memory Gardens. They bought the original homestead saying they would restore the headstones. It appears they never did. The following inscriptions are on Headstones:

      Jacob VanMeter, who departed - Oct. 22, 1806* - age 62 yr. . . .

      Isabella Evans VanMeter, died June 28, 1817 in 71 yr. of her life. (wife of Jacob). . . .

      Clarissa LaRue, died March 13, 1857. age 53 yr. (wife of Jacob)

      Isaac VanMeter, son of Isaac, died Feb. 12, 1831 aged 26 yr. 9 mo. 9 days. . . .

      Isaac VanMeter died 15 day of Jan. 1828. (son of Jacob and Isabella). . . .

      Mary VanMeter, Daughter of Isaac & Mary, 18th March, 1839, Aged 19 yr. 11 days. . . .

      Jacob VanMeter Sr. no birth or death date. . . .

      Johonnes Van Metre Jr. and his second wife Josinah were also originally buried here, but were move[d] to Green Hill Cemetery in Martinsburg by his granddaughter Anne Alburtis Van Metre.

      *Frances C. Van Metre in "A Van Metre Family Record" states the stone read 1806 when she visited the cemetery in 1935. Berkeley County Historical Society claims 1800.
