Slate Chapel Cemetery (Annex)
Slate, Wood County, West Virginia

Lat: 39° 17' 56"N, Lon: 81° 19' 22"W

Contributed by Teresa Fordyce, Apr 17, 2003, last edited Jul 22, 2007 [s82c43@verizon.net]. Total records = 88.

Take Rt. 21 South out of Mineral Wells to Wolf Run Road in Rockport. Turn left onto Wolf Run Road and travel for about 3 ½ miles to Slate Creek Road. Follow Slate Creek Road for about 2 miles. The Cemetery sits on the hill to the left. There is a sign at the bottom of the hill next to the road.

This is one of two Cemeteries that is owned and maintained by the Slate United Methodist Church, the other being located in the church yard about ¼ of a mile on down the road from this cemetery. The property for the Slate Chapel Annex was donated by the Knight family of Slate. This cemetery is still active and very well maintained.

This transcription was done on Mar 24, 2002 from a physical examination of the stones present, when I visited the cemetery.
