Elevation: 550 feet
Accuracy: 14 feet


This cemetery is no longer intact. It was located along McComas Road at Martha. Coming from Barboursville on McComas Road, you turn left at the intersection by S&J Market. Go maybe 1/2 mile until you get to the 2nd house on your left (Eplin residence). You pull off the road by the house. Look across the road and see an old vacant house by the woods. Directly to the right of the house is a small clearing that leads up to the woods. That little cleared area is supposedly where the cemetery was located.
