Comments: This is a tiny cemetery on the right along the highway as you enter Eleanor, WV from the Winfield side.  While it is now in the city limits of Eleanor, the cemetery is also known as being located in Red House (which neighbors Eleanor to the east).
Buried at this cemetery are Dr. John L. Dunlap and his wife Rose Lee Staton.  Rose was the daughter of Simon Cephys and Roxalena E. Staton, and granddaughter of James Damron Staton.
