From interstate 79 exit at the 67 mile marker (Flatwoods) turn right at light go approx. 1/2 mile turn onto the Airport Rd. Go approx. 7 miles to stop sign go straight on a narrow road (Corley, Caress Rd.) road is later marked as Vernon Rd. Go approx. 3 miles to Milroy Rd. signs for cemetery is beside road. Turn left at first road or just follow signs.

The cemetery is located in Braxton County, West Virginia. It is well maintained and accessible by car.

As far as I can tell there is at least 57 graves marked only by stone.

Terry and Zelma Fisher transcribed these markers in the month of Sept. 2002.
