Saint Michael Catholic Cemetery (Silver Run Cemetery)
Ritchie County, West Virginia
It is a little south of Cairo in an area commonly referred to as Silver Run. The cemetery is commonly know as the Silver Run cemetery.
The church was established when the first group of Irish escaping the potato famine arrived in Ritchie County. Sadly, the church has fallen to ruin and the cemetery is a little overgrown. There are no burials recorded there later than 1922.
