From US 60 at Barboursville take Main Street to Martha Road, which will be a right turn at the second red light, and go to the Senior Center. The center is on the left and across the street from the elementary school and before the railroad underpass.  Turn left into the driveway beside the Senior Center and go down to the Barboursville Little League baseball field.  The cemetery is on the bank on the 3rd base side of the field.  It is overgrown and not maintained.
