HOLLIDAY CEMETERY 6th St and Gale Ave, Parkersburg One of the most picturesque of Parkersburg's old cemeteries, Holliday is located near the Little Kanawha River and has a deep ravine running through its center. Stone walls constructed during the 1930s by CCC labor mark two boundaries of the cemetery. The cemetery's earliest known burials date to 1811. At least two other markers record burials in 1818. Lying in an unmarked grave is Ransom Reed, Harman and Margaret Blennerhassett's favorite and most famous servant. A number of Civil War soldiers, both Union and Confederate, are buried in this small cemetery.
