This small family cemetery is about ¼ acre in size, with no restrictions as to type and placing of markers. Lots are not marked, graves marked by monuments and field stones, Lots not for sale, burial records kept by S.R. Ferrell, Linden, WV, and the cemetery is still in use as burial ground for those who have purchased lots.
This cemetery was established in 1861 as family burial ground. The first known burial was in 1861. It was in great condition though it is hard to get to. New fencing, trees have been cleared out and is being maintained by the Jack Bradley family.
I walked this cemetery in Jun 2006 and Oct 2007. Info taken from pictures I took and compared with WPA reading of Aug 11, 1938.- Reggie Watson
