Other_Information: To my understanding, this cemetery is a \"forgotten\" \"abandoned\" cemetery because most the decedent\'s have died or unable to care for it or are unaware of its location. My husband just happened to come across it one day 4wheeler riding. The owner of the surrounding land is a logging company called pardy-curtain in Webster county wv. I\'m unsure if they know the cemetery exists but it is in immediate danger because they are actively logging the area. I have not contacted the company or anyone bease I\'m unsure of who to contact. The overall condition of this graveyard is sadly poor. The grave markers that can be read appear to be several children/infants according to the dates on stones. Some of them have been etched in rocks and not legible to me.
