From Huntington, WV in Cabell County take State Rt. 10 to Salt Rock.  At Salt Rock cross the bridge and railroad tracks.  As soon as you cross the tracks turn Right onto Midkiff Rd.  Go 0.9 of a mile or until you come  to the 1st. railroad crossing.  Cross track and the cemetery is across the road in front of you.  Overgrown with weeds and not maintained.   Only one marker in this small cemetery but several field stones.

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