Notes from WVCPA volunteer, Charlotte Iman in January 2009:
"The Knopp Cemetery is an abandoned cemetery in the McClintic Wildlife Management Area, Robinson District, Mason County, West Virginia.
The cemetery contains approximately 19 graves, 8 have legible markers, 2 revealed some information when examined closely. One small monument revealed no information. Nine fieldstones of varying size were found, I believe two were intended as foot markers One depression with no visible marker was also found. The cemetery was in very poor condition."
