Pam, You've caught me out of town so I must try and remember where I got the directions (I'll check for certain next week). I believe the Upshur County web page has a list of cemeteries and their locations. The entrance is not marked at all. There is a small clearing where you can park right next to a creek that goes under Hwy 271. Seems like there was a used car lota cross the street but I'm not certain on that. Just a dirt parking area. Look for a trail going up hill - not at all a clear trail. Be sure you have long pants and boots on. At the top of the hill you can make out an entrance but you won't see that from the Hwy or even from the parking area. I recall several down trees that we had to cross or go around to get up the hill. Once in the cemetery we encountered weeds and bushes at least 4 feet tall. It was very difficult to make out markers. It may be better this time of year. Good luck and let me know if you find it. It seems such a tragedy it has become so neglected.
