Cemetery located on McCarty road just out of Richwood WV city limits. It is 1 1/2 miles from Richwood's traffic light. Turn south on Oakford to Valley Avenue then left on Valley Ave. then to Dyer Ave. Turn right on Dyer, continue to McCarty turn right go to Front Street turn left on to Front St. Turn right on to Williams Ave. On Williams drive to Hill St. Turn right and go to McCarty and turn left on to McCarty. Continue to the end of the paved road. From the end of paved road the cemetery is .2 of a mile on the left of road.
This cemetery appears to have been in use for only a few years in the early 1900s, judging from the death dates. There appear to be several unmarked graves, also many graves marked with only a stone.
I walked and read this cemetery in 2002. This consists of all existing and legible headstones.
