When I located this cemetery I found the tombstones broken into pieces and scattered around. It Appears that a grave has been exhumed and the only thing left was the bottom half of the tombstone. The cemetery is over grown and in need of cleaning up and the tombstone put back where they belong. I placed a few back where they belonged by matching up the broken pieces to the footers. This cemetery is located at the end of 4th Street in Nitro, WV. Go to end of street go up driveway to turn around area behind the houses. Cemetery is located about 100 feet above the parking area.
