Latitude: N 38 29.808
Longitude: W 082 17.796
Elevation: 810
Accuracy: 19


From Huntington take Route 2 North to 9 Mile Creek Road.   After you go past Route 193 (Merritts Creek Connection) go 1.3 miles and at the bridge turn Right onto 9 Mile Creek Road.  Take this road for 1.4 miles and turn Left up hill on a gravel driveway.  (This is the first driveway after the big power lines)   Go up to the house (David Kingery) and get permission to use his road up the hill to the cemetery.  

The cemetery is at the top of the hill near the big power lines that cross the Ohio River.  It overlook the river which can be seen when the leaves are off of the trees.   The cemetery has not been taken care for for a number of years.   Most of the markers are laying on the ground and with the weeds and brush they are hard to find.   There are several graves marked with field stones and some sunken graves with no markers at all.
