The Kingwood Cemetery, also known as the Maplewood Cemetery, is located off Maplewood Dr. and S. Sigler St. in the south west side of Kingwood, Preston County, West Virginia



Samuel Ruble Trowbridge, born 1782, died 1864. The inscription says "Tribute of loving remembrance erected by his daughter Martha Parks."  The monument is on the up hill side of the cemetery closest to Maplewood Dr.  It appears to be one of the older sections.

Next to Samuel's monument is that of Susan (Sheets) Trowbridge, Samuel's second wife.  The inscriptions gives the dates 1798-1861 and "Tribute in loving remembrance erected by her daughter Martha Parks."

Just behind Samuel and Susan's monuments is Margaret J. Trowbridge, Mar. 6, 1830, Mar. 17, 1903.  She was the daughter of Samuel and Susan.

Martha, daughter of Samuel Ruble and Susan (Sheets) Trowbridge.  The name of her husband is not known. The headstone is down hill from those of her parents near the same section.
