R. P. HENSLEY CEMETERY
Cabell County, West Virginia


Latitude: N 38  23. 45
Longitude: W 082 18. 18


From US 60 in Cabell County take Alt. 10 to Rt.10.  Turn Left onto Rt. 10 and go about 1/2 mile to you come to Paugh Rd. on the Left side.  Turn up this road and go to the end.   At the end of the road is a house that belongs to Davis Lockwood.  Stop and asked about going to the cemetery.  Behind the house is a gate that let you out into a pasture field.  Go through the gate and go to the gas line.  You will see a old road that goes up the side of the gas line.  There has been a slip in the hill where the gas line is but the old road is ok to go up.  At the top of the hill turn Left and the cemetery will be at the tree line. 

The cemetery is not taken care of and the cattle have knock down the headstones and it is over ground with weeds and brush.
