Boggs Family Cemetery

Big Otter, Clay County, West Virginia

 

I have inventoried the cemetery from the back, looking towards the James Martin “Mart” Boggs family homeplace across Rt 16, from  right to  left. the photograph of the cemetery is from the front, entering the cemetery.  There is very good access (black top road). Turn left off Rt. 16, across from the Go Mart, and go to the top of  the hill.   I would also like to thank Jean Boggs for making sure that the cemetery is well maintained. Jean is the secretary & treasurer of the Boggs family cemetery trust fund.   If anyone would care to help with the upkeep, they can send a donation to the Boggs family cemetery

c/o Jean Boggs, HC 75 Box 160, Ivydale, WV. 25133.
