Condition of cemetery**: Excellent (April 2005)
Accessibility: This cemetery is located opposite and just a little ways down the road from Morning Sunrise cemetery on Arbuckle Creek Road.  To get there, take the paved road in from the Kanawha River at northwest end of Grimm's Landing that takes you past the old Arbuckle School and Oma Chapel church.  Continue past the church about 0.3 miles and take the first gravel road on the left that leads steeply up the hill.  As you reach the top of the short climb and come out of the trees, Tucker Cemetery will be visible back to the left on a shoulder of the ridge, Morning Sunrise Cemetery will quickly follow in a meadow on the right and Evening Sunset will be on your left in a fenced-in area about 50 feet further on. There is plenty of room to park off the road and while the ground can be uneven in places, it is very accessible.
