Rolen Bias Cemetery

ROLEN BIAS CEMETERY
Cabell County, West Virginia

Latitude: N 38  20.  944
Longitude: W 082 11. 525
Elevation: 709  feet
Accuracy: 19  feet


From US 60 East take Cyrus Creek Road to McComas Road.  Turn left on to this road and go several miles until you come to Trace Creek Road.  Turn left onto this road and go about 1.2 miles (Last House on the Left).  Stop at house and asked for directions to get to the cemetery.  The cemetery is on the hill behind the house.  It is very overgrown with weeds and brush which makes finding the markers and graves very hard.
