Wigal Cemetery
Wood County, West Virginia

Lat: 39 08' 34"N, Lon: 81 37' 42"W

Contributed by Teresa Fordyce, May 15, 2003, last edited Jul 22, 2007 [s82c43@verizon.net]. Total records = 99.

Take Rt. 68 from Parkersburg, South through Lubeck. Turn left onto Wadesville Road, next to the Ohio Valley Motor Speedway. Follow Wadesville Road for about 4 miles. The sign for the Cemetery is on the left side of the road. The concrete drive leads up the hill to the Cemetery. (This Cemetery is mile past the Wadesville Cemetery).

This is a family Cemetery. It is still active. The property is owned and maintained by the Wigal Family.

I walked and transcribed this cemetery on May 11, 2003. This is a complete transcription of all existing headstones.
