I live in San Diego Calif, and cannot be of service for pictures, But I'll share my little knowledge.

In 1931 Edward Thorp King read cemetery Gravestones and published a book, "Early Families in the Grant and Pleasant Districts.

He lists the Saint Peter Evangelical Lutheran Church, Cemetery, Bruceton Mills, Grant District. Four Miles northeast of Bruceton Mills, Grant District.
Included is Mary H Thorton, 1842-1922.

BTW. 5 years ago, I found the King Book not to be User Friendly. So I created my own Transcription, sorting first by cemetery, then by name. It was 90 pages long. I did it on Wordperfect and saved it on 3.5 disc. Unfortunately, I no longer have a computer that will use either Word Perfect or 3.5 Discs. Here is the Good news:
I sent a copy to the Marion County Genealogical Club, and maybe, they saved it in some accessible fashion. In 2005 the Marion County Genealogical Club was located at 321 Monroe Street, Fairmount, West Virginia, 26554. See if
they can help with the King Grave list.
