Anderson Cemetery, Jackson Co., WV Anderson Cemetery, Jackson Co., WV

County: Jackson
USGS Quad: Kentuck
Coordinates: 38.7048N  81.6240W
Maintained by: Drema & David Berry
Land owner: Unknown
Date added to WVCPA register: April 2004
Condition of cemetery**: Excellent (April 2004)
Accessibility: Relatively easily accessible in good weather.  The gate to the cemetery drive at the bottom of the hill is generally kept locked, so without prior arrangement with Herman Anderson (who lives in the house across the creek from the cemetery at the bottom of the hill - the only house nearby), it is necessary to walk the fairly long and steep drive up to the cemetery (which is probably preferable to most but the stout-hearted driver with a Jeep, as it IS very steep and narrow, though there is a good amount of space to park and turn around in the grass alongside the cemetery fence at the top of the hill). Not suited for the physically- challenged. 

** Condition of cemetery as observed on the given date - may not be representative of care at other times of the year
Scale: Excellent - Good - Fair - Poor - Abandoned

Comments: Dates in Red are not inscribed on the tombstone and have either been calculated based on death date or are as a result of research on the individual.

This is a pretty little family cemetery, located on a knoll overlooking Plum Orchard just east of Grasslick Creek in Jackson County.  It is in very well-maintained condition.  

When driving to the cemetery, be sure to take the route in from the Belgrove side of the cemetery (CR 34-14) rather than the one that comes from the west (unless you'd like to drive through Grasslick Creek!).  Even though published maps give the impression that you can get there from the I-71 frontage road, the Grasslick crosses that road not far west of the cemetery. When we were there in April 2004, the creek was running a good 2 feet deep where the roadbed was, and the west bank where the road went into the creek was pretty muddy. CR 34-14 is an 'unimproved' road, but was quite passable by car in April.  We'd recommend taking CR 19-3 north from the east side of I-71 at the Kenna exit towards Belgrove, taking a left onto CR 34-14 when you get to it.  Mind where you drive, as there are a few high rocks in the road and some corresponding ruts. Just past a little house that's situated on your left, (it's on the other side of the creek from the road), start watching for a gated drive that climbs steeply back up the hill on your right hand side.  It is just a short distance past the house where Mr. Herman Anderson was living in April 2004 (his grand-niece Drema and her husband David are the caretakers of the cemetery). That gated drive leads up to the cemetery. It is not marked with any sign, and there is barely room for one small car to park right up to the gate off the road.
