Elk Branch Cemetery
Jefferson County, West Virginia

Luther John & Flowing Springs Rds
Shepherdstown, West Virginia

Lat: 39 21' 53"N, 77 49' 41"W

Contributed by Anne Braun, Jul 19, 2003 [annieb1961@comcast.net]. Total records = 61.

From Shepherdstown, from the intersection of State Road 230 and Flowing Springs Road. go south 3 miles on Flowing Springs Road until you see two churches on the west side of the road.

This is a small Presbyterian Church cemetery that is well taken care of. The earliest burials taken place in the late 1830's/early 1840's with the last burial taking place in 1978. Some of the headstones are worn and faded so I have a hard time reading them.

I walked Elk Branch Cemetery on Jul 16, 2003.
