From US Route 60 in Cabell County at Barboursville, WV.  Take Alt. 10 and Route 10 South to you come to Salt Rock.  At the Chevron Gas station turn Right onto Madison Cr. Rd.   Take this road until you come to Reuben Branch Rd.  Now turn Right onto this road and go 0.8 mile.  This will put you into a curve that turn to the Left.   At this point the blacktop road ends.  About 20 or so yards before the blacktop road ends there is a dirt road that turns to the Right up the hill.  Take this old dirt road to the top of the top of the hill and you will come into some fields.  Go out through these fields and the cemetery will be on your Left.  From where you turn off of the blacktop and go up the hill to the cemetery is about 0.6 miles.   The cemetery is fenced and maintained.
