Take Rt. 2 North out of Parkersburg for about 10 miles to the junction with Rt.31. Turn left onto Rt. 31 and follow this all the way to the junction with Rt. 14. Turn left onto Rt. 14 and go ˝ mile. The cemetery is on the right side of the road, just behind the “Welcome to Williamstown” sign.

This is a community cemetery and is well maintained. It has not been used much in recent years. Many of the stones are very weather worn and difficult to read. Several stones are broken and/or have fallen over. Complete accuracy of this transcription cannot be guaranteed, please verify with other sources.

I walked and transcribed this cemetery on Jun 11, 2003.
