SIZEMORE CEMETERY, Adonijah, Clay County, West Virginia

Description: The cemetery consists of 3 acres of land, approx-
imately 1/4 of which has been cleared and is in use.  No cemetery
records exist.  No one is in charge of the cemetery, so no records
exist and there is no sexton.

I recorded the cemetery as follows: beginning at the left front
and recording a row, then coming back to begin at the 2nd row at
the front, and continuing in that manner until completed.

Location:  From State Route 16 turn  left up Independence Hill
(secondary road 10 - a narrow, paved road).  Drive approximately
2.5 miles, take right fork then take another right past the Laurel
Fork Baptist Church and parking lot.  Go approximately .01 miles
to fork (Old Sheridan SIZEMORE residence); take the right fork 
and go .6 miles, keeping on the right road.  Go another .1 mile
and turn right; cemetery is straight ahead.  A 4-wheel drive vehicle
is recommended for the remainder of the trip past the Old Sheridan
SIZEMORE residence.
