Campbell Cemetery, Campbell Run, Near Metz, WV

My son called and said he had visited a small cemetery on Campbell Run. Owner said it was a Campbell cemetery and 3 old graves were there. The owner goes up once in a while and trims things up and said others visit once in a while. My son said it was hard to get to and the headstones appeared to be sandstone scratched out with a sharp instrument. Some dates in the 1700s and while faint, at least some of the language appeared to be gaelic.
Anyone have any information on who might be buried there? Owner showed my son the remains of the stone foundation of a one room cabin on his property. I am aware that Isaac Umbell Campbell's home place is further down the run. Steve also visited there yesterday, owner showed him the 14" square square beams underneath the house.
