Hi there,
I recently visited the "Old Sines Cemetery" deep in the woods south of Goshen in the Banks District od Upshur Co. WV. The cemetery consists of 5 marked graves and at least 14 unmarked graves by my count.
.
Among the marked graves was that of John William Daff/Daft.
As you'll see in the 1st attached photo, his grave had formerly been "unmarked". The old rough field stones (serving as his head & footstones) are still in place. Behind his original headstone stands fairly new marble military headstone.
Note that his surname was spelled Daff rather then Daft.
The second photo is a close-up of that headstone.
I do not know if Major Daft's wives are buried there. If they are.... their graves are unmarked. One of his grandsons, Boyd Daff (s/o Syrus J. Daff) has a marked grave there, however. See the 3rd attached photo below.
.
Bye for now,
Kathleen
