This cemetery is located on Green Hill above Gregory. From I-79 take the Flatwoods exit, turn left at light. Go approx. 6 miles to Falls Mill, turn left onto the Green Hill road. Not sure how far from there, pass the Pleasant Hill Church go maybe another mile. Cemetery is on right in slight curve, monuments can be seen from road.
Old timber cutting landing is behind cemetery. The cemetery is among grown trees and brush and is not taken care of. 3 graves marked by stone. Some of the monuments are broken and some were laying beneath leaves, although some are tall making it easy to see from road.
My guess is it is the Haymond Cemetery, which I have named it but I could not find the name listed anywhere.
As far as I can tell there is at least 3 graves marked only by stone.
I visited and transcribed this cemetery in the month of Oct. 2002.
