Topping Detail List

Latitude: N 38 22. 958
Longitude: W 082 22. 685
Elevation: 688 feet
Accuracy: 15 feet


From Interstate 64 in Cabell Co., WV take State Route 10 South.  You will come to a Rich Gas Station at the intersection of the road that goes to Hite Saunders School.  Just before you get to the Rich Gas Station there is a gravel driveway that turns to your Right.  This will be the property of Paul Bowen.  Take this driveway up the hill (Ab. 300 Yards).  When you see the house on the hill the cemetery will be in the woods just below it.

The cemetery has been abandoned and is over grown with brush and weeds.  It is not fenced and is in very bad shape.

The circle is broken
one seat is forsaken,
one brother from our
family is taken.

Death has been here and
borne away
A brother from our side
Just in the morning of his day
In youth and love he died
