According to the directions recorded in "Mason County, W.Va. Cemetery Inscriptions", traveling from Point Pleasant:
"Near Ambrosia. Go to Oldaker store, turn around and come back about one mile toward Point Pleasant. After passing large house then a small frame near edge of road, park and walk to state road sign with arrow denoting curve, follow fence line to point of hill until under poser line and three hickory nut trees. One old boulder rock can be seen." WVCPA volunteers who visited here in October 2007 also noted: "The landowner is deceased and there are huge briars growing everywhere.  Several field stones mark the cemetery.  The directions to the cemetery are accurate from the Mason County Cemetery books.   Follow the power line --located between two huge white oak trees."

  [Very difficult to read the inscription on this lone tombstone - the year on the death date looks like it could be that of Sarah A. Ward (1855), and the inscription looks to be the one that was recorded in 1973, but it would be pretty much just a guess - this was the only remnant of a tombstone found in the cemetery area in October 2007]
