Scott Cemetery
Durgon, Hardy County, West Virginia

Located 5 to 7 miles south of Moorefield on the hill to the left of the old Scott place in Durgon, Hardy County, West Virginia. Before the old Scott Farm, turn left onto Lem Cleaver Road and immediately turn left up a steep gravel road, go up the hill about 1 mile. The cemetery is on top of the hill inside a well-kept fenced area with a large white gate. This cemetery was read in July 1979 and a copy is in the genealogy room at the Hardy County Public Library in Moorefield. It was read in July 2004 by Barbara, Amanda and Vallie Weese and compared to the 1979 listing. Updated December 2008, transcribed and submitted by Barbara Weese. (I also have pictures of most of the tombstones - if interested, email me at

Note: Family stories state that there are several graves of African Americans on the outside of the fence, probably slaves of the Scott Family. There are also some field stones in one area which could be older graves.

Ethel (Hardy) Weese did the upkeep on this cemetery until her death. Her son, George Weese Jr took care of the cemetery for about 20 years and still helps out with upkeep of the road to it. His sister, JoAnn Shook takes care of mowing the grass, etc now.
