|Date added to WVCPA register:||17 January 2004|
|Condition of cemetery**:||Excellent (January 2004)|
|Accessibility:||The cemetery is located on Ches-Wal-Road, Sec. Rt. 33/4, about 1/4 mile from the juncture with State Rt. 33, Teays Valley Road (on south side of Rt. 33, between Scary Creek and Teays Valley Road). It is easily accessible - located in a relatively flat area on top of a ridge, and about a 50 yard walk across the field from the road (be sure and close the gate behind you to keep the cattle from getting out!). There is enough space to park a car outside the fence.|

Use of the readings of this cemetery graciously granted by Bill Wintz of the Upper Vandalia Historical Society. The names and dates of the tombstone inscriptions are taken from work done by Paul & Ruth Ellis on September 17, 1986. The contributor of the photos for this page is Terry McCallister, a descendant of the families buried in Maddox Cemetery. It is through his dedicated efforts that this cemetery was cleared of the overgrown brambles and briars in August of 2003, and he and his family continue to maintain this cemetery with loving care and devotion. We of the WVCPA extend our encouragement and thanks to Terry for doing such a wonderful job in preserving this little piece of the history of West Virginia!
notes from Terry:
The land has always been in the Maddox family. The last one was Elton Maddox but he passed away last year. The land then went to his daughter Brenda West. There is a gate in the fence so you can either walk 50 yards to the cemetery or drive to it because it's on top of a ridge and is flat. I called her the day Uncle Fred and Me worked on the fence. She said just to be sure to close the gate behind us so her cattle would not get out. There is enough room to park outside the fence if you just want to walk in, but just watch where you step! The cemetery is now full and there will not be anymore people buried there."
