Wilson Cemetery
Slate, Wood County, West Virginia

Lat: 39° 07' 06"N, Lon: 81° 27' 40"W

Contributed by Teresa Fordyce, Sep 14, 2011, last edited Sep 27, 2011 [s82c43@frontier.com]. Total records = 88.

Take the Mineral Wells exit off of I-77. Travel on Rt. 14 south for about 6.8 miles. Turn right onto Slate Creek Road. Follow Slate Creek Road for about 2 miles. The cemetery sits on a hill on the left side of the road. There are three large white crosses in the cemetery that are visible from the road.

The cemetery was donated to the Harmony Chapel Church in the late 1800s, the property is now owned by Charles Pyles. The church burnt down in 1930 when a fire was accidentally started by a State Road Crew working in the area. The cemetery is sometimes referred to as the Harmony Chapel Cemetery.

IThe cemetery hasn’t been used in many years and is overgrown with weeds. Most of the stones are still in very good condition.

This is a complete reading of all existing headstones when I walked and transcribed this cemetery in Sep 10, 2011.
