County: Jackson
USGS Quad: Kenna
Coordinates: 38.6264N  81.6866W
Maintained by: Unknown
Land owner: Unknown
Date added to WVCPA register: April 2005
Condition of cemetery**: Poor (April 2005)
Accessibility: This cemetery is located just northwest of Goldtown, down Cunningham Hollow road to the top of the ridge.  Turn right into the drive for the "new" house (the Greg Monday residence, per April 2005) as you come to the top of the ridge, and park behind the house by the barn (do check in with the Monday's to let them know who's parking in their yard and your destination).  The road the rest of the way to the cemetery, while not too terrible when dry or if you have a 4x4, is probably not one that should be driven by the average car or small truck. 
If you park at the Monday's, it is a fairly short, pleasant stroll down the wooded roadbed to the cemetery.  The steepest part of the walk is at the beginning, so you can gauge your abilities to that. 
As the road starts to rise a bit and veer to the left, with a deep run dropping down to the left, the cemetery will be about 50 feet off the road to your right in an obvious clearing. Incidentally, this roadbed continues around the ridge and comes out in the meadow above Rock Springs Cemetery, another Harrison family cemetery like this one.

There are clearly other burials here that are unmarked - sunken graves, field stone markers, etc. Further research required & input from Harrison family researchers would be appreciated to try and achieve as complete a cemetery roster as possible.   Source: WVCPA reading of the cemetery in April 2005
