From US 60 in Milton, Cabell County, WV take Fair Grounds Rd. for about 0.5 miles or until you come to Blenko Glass.  At Blenko Glass turn Right and go over the railroad tracks and take Dry Creek Rd. for about 1.3 miles.  You will come to a fork in the road.  Take the Right hand fork for about 0.2 miles and you will come to a gravel road that turn to the Right and goes up to some houses.  Take this road till you come to the last house.  From the barn take the old haul road up the hill (About 0.5 miles).  When you get to the top of the hill you will come out onto a gas line and the cemetery will be on the bank on your Left side.  The cemetery at one time had a fence around it but not much is to be found now.  The cemetery is overgrown with brush and is in very bad shape.
