Here's an update on the access conditions for this cemetery from WVCPA contributor Pat Warren, who visited there this past month (June 2008):

"The road was partially paved and well graded. There is no trouble getting to this cemetery. It is kept mowed by a gentleman who lives at Seven Mile Ridge and Potts Chapel Road, and per latest note on the church door, the cost for gas to keep the cemetery mown runs $80 or more a month. I believe there are some unmarked graves as I remember my grandmother Ella Mae Denny telling me this, and when visiting the cemetery it can be seen that there are visibly about 20 graves that are unmarked or marked only with concrete blocks. The chapel is in good shape and locked. The road heading west past the cemetery is rough with just a rock base covering the dirt road and dead-ends to County Road 72, then to Millstone Road on out to Rt. 2 at Apple Grove."

Pat also contributed a large number of the photos on this page.
