SOVINE CEMETERY
(Culloden Community)
Cabell County, West Virginia


Latitude: N 38 27.953
Longitude: W 082 03.348
Elevation: 980 feet
Accuracy: 19 feet


From Culloden, WV, turn northeast onto Virginia Avenue at JJJ's Market from US 60. Go about 1/10 mile and turn left onto Benedict Road. Stay on this road for about 4.0 miles and you will come to a sign on the right side of the road that reads Culloden Community Cemetery. There is a locked gate across the road and you must park and walk past the gate to the cemetery, which is about 100 yards from the gate. The cemetery is very well maintained.

Notes: 

One homemade marker without any name or dates, and the footstone reads "SISTER".
Located between the graves for Sylvester & Mamie Sovine and Debra Pauline Stockdale.

Two homemade markers, similiar to ones for the Sovine's, but they have no name or dates.

There are several graves marked only with iron poles in the ground.

One grave marked only with a footstone that reads "R. C. S."
