The photo above is of the area that the Edwards family identifies as the old Hall cemetery. In their memory, there have not been any graves that have been marked, and in recent years identifiable. This was confirmed by WVCPA volunteer Barbara Hall in October 2008. She noted that there were a number of fieldstones scattered about, some of which could perhaps have been marking graves, but there was not sufficient evidence to make that conclusion solid.

The maps below show the approximate location of the cemetery in southwest Mason County, and the roads to take to get there. You can also view this map in Google Maps.

 

Comments: WVCPA extends thanks to Barbara Hall for researching this cemetery and providing the photo and location information, and to the Edwards family for showing Barbara what they have believed to be the cemetery site in the years that they have owned the farm.
