County: Jackson
USGS Quad: Sissonville     Map
Coordinates: 38.62312N  81.68224W
Maintained by: Unknown
Land owner: Unknown
Date added to WVCPA register: April 2004
Condition of cemetery**: Excellent (April 2004)
Accessibility: This cemetery is located just northwest of Goldtown, down Cunningham Hollow road at the top of the ridge in the meadow on the right hand side (if you start going down the narrow, winding road to Dog Fork you've gone too far). Parking is alongside the road, and somewhat limited.  In dry weather you can pull off the road a little farther into the meadow, but not much - it can be muddy.  From the road it's just a short stroll up the gentle slope to the cemetery.  The ground can be a little uneven in spots, but not too bad.  Currently no fence, ditches, or any other such obstruction to getting to the cemetery exist.  You may want to check at the house next door to the cemetery (just to the right of the cemetery on the same side of the road) before crossing their field, just to let them know you're be visiting the cemetery.
