From US Route 60 in Ona, WV -- Cabell County -- Turn at the Red Light onto Fudge Creek Road.  Stay on this Road for 6.7 miles or until you come to a sign for the Huntington Archery Club.  Turn Left onto this road and go for 0.8 miles.  This will put you at the top of the hill.  When you reach the top you will come upon a gas line that crosses the road.  There is a gate across the gas line and you will have to park there and walk the rest of the way.  Just follow the gas line for about a 3/4 mile.  The cemetery is up on a knoll on your Right and can
be easily missed as you walk by.  It is overgrown and not maintain.

The following list was compiled by actual reading of the tombstones. All the information, excluding annotation, is written on the tombstone.
