Jonathan A. Boyd Family Cemetery

LOCATION: On a hill known as "Cedar Knob" between Plum Holler and the N&W Railroad. By railroad: Go about one mile past the Putnam crossing towards Gardner. The cemetery is about .25 mile (as the crow flies) to the left of the tracks. By road: Take Route 67 from Honaker toward Gardner. Turn left onto Route 637 at Honaker Elementary School. At the bottom of the hill, turn left onto an unmarked dirt road. About .2 mile after crossing the railroad it veers to the right and into Plum Holler. The cemetery is on a hill to the left of this road. It can be identified by a cluster of very large cedar trees. There is an overgrown path, of sorts, that leads to the cemetery gate. However, the area is so overgrown the cemetery is not visible until you are within about 50 feet of it.
