|Date added to WVCPA register:||May 2007|
|Condition of cemetery**:||Excellent (May 2007)|
|Accessibility:||The cemetery is located just south of Rt. 87, just inside the county line on the east side of the county. From 87, take CR 5/29 (Casto Road) not quite a mile, and the cemetery will be on your right. It is well-marked and easily visible at the side of the road. Use caution driving on Casto Road, as it is narrow and has a few blind hills and corners and does have some local traffic, including ATV's.|

WVCPA volunteer Alice Click has provided the latest access conditions for getting to this cemetery, based her trip there the Spring of 2007. She also provided some of the photos on this page. WVCPA staff subsequently visited the cemetery near the Memorial Day holiday, and were pleased to find it very well-cared for and in good order. Our compliments to the King family members or friends that are tending to this cemetery!
King family descendant Franklin King is hoping to get the funds together, as well as the manpower, since his strength is not what it used to be, to get a fence erected around this cemetery and do some modest restoration work to help this cemetery last at least another 100 years. If you're interested in lending a helping hand in some way, shape or form, please contact WVCPA and we'll put you in touch with Franklin.
