I found a fairly recent obituary for a burial at Linwood, and the funeral director was Wilson Funeral Home in Martins Ferry:
920 National Road, Bridgeport, OH 43912 740.635.0651

There must be some secret sisterhood of funeral directors and cemetery associations that allows them to reach each other and at least get a call back? Maybe Wilson could help you to reach the Linwood Association? I think Wilson could even put you in touch with a monument maker if you find out that you need one.

Esther Weygandt Powell transcribed many of the cemeteries in Belmont County in the 1960s and published a book of them in 1969, I think. She mentioned that the county's cemetery plat book says that part of Linwood is occupied by St. Anthony's cemetery. That sounds to me like a Catholic section attached to or in a public cemetery. According to this history of an immigrant family in that neighborhood, their family members were buried in Linwood, and they worshipped at St. Anthony Church in Kirkwood, Ohio. It's a nice story:
