A note from the submitter, Melanie Whittington: 

"The MacDonald cemetery is my pet project, I have a Civil War veteran buried there, Wyatt Sumner and his wife Rachel. There are actually about 5 Civil Veterans from each side there so this really is a historical place. This cemetery has been neglected for decades and I am trying to bring it back to its beauty. It is so grown up that from the road you can't tell it's a cemetery. It is really sad to even look at with the ghostly stones rising up out of the brush and briers. It is on a hillside so it is very hard and dangerous to clean. The boy scouts tried to clean it up years ago and I think they hurt it more than they helped, there are big piles of limbs where they started clearing and piles of headstones where they were stacked up, I guess to put back at some time, but it never got done."

Reportedly, from eyewitness account, the cemetery is still tremendously overgrown per September 2007 and is in desperate need of care. If you would like to help Melanie in the effort to restore and maintain the MacDonald Cemetery, you can contact her by email by clicking on her name above.  Also, if anyone has photos from this cemetery that they would like to share on this page, please contact WVCPA at .
