Wright Cemetery

 WRIGHT CEMETERY
Cabell County, West Virginia


Latitude: N 38  24. 582
Longitude: W 082  22.239
Elevation: 653 feet
Accuracy: 17 feet


Located on Locust Dr.  From US 60 at Eastern Heights shopping center go up the hill to the crossroads.  Turn Right onto Norway Avenue and go until you come to Locust Dr.  Turn Right and go to the top of the hill.  At the top park where ever you can and the cemetery will be on the Right hand side of the road up behind a house.  There is a small walkway between two houses that goes up to the cemetery.

The cemetery has been abandoned and is very overgrown with brush and weeds.  Also the cemetery is littered with trash people have thrown away.

There were only two markers to be found in the cemetery.  Also found was a base of a marker that has a verse on it and a base that had nothing on it.  There were several rocks found in the cemetery along with sunken spots that could possibly have been where graves were located at one time.

After talking with a person in the area about the cemetery the person said he thinks that some of the grave have been moved to other cemeteries.
