|Condition of cemetery**:||Good (April 2008)|
|Accessibility:||This cemetery is
located near Ford Point on Trace Fork (Coon Creek), Lincoln County, WV on
property owned by B.G. Boster. The dirt road is the turn off from Trace Fork
near where Lower Coon Creek School used to stand. It is a little difficult
to access. Go approximately 3/4 mile up the dirt road until you come to a
"double gate" on the right. You must park along the dirt road,
cross a fence and walk northwards about 300 feet up a bank to the cemetery.

Dates in Red
above 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.
Per the reading in April 2008, there appear to be about 4 graves marked with crude fieldstone but there are shallow depressions that suggest about 6 - 8 additional unmarked graves. If you know of names of persons that should be added to this list, please contact WVCPA with the basic information (like the listing above), including the information source as well so that we may note that with the record on this page.
