John L Casto Cemetery - Jackson County, WV




Directions: from Ripley, take I77 south to the Kenna/Kentuck exit. Turn left and make a left almost immediately on the road opposite the gas station. The road is paved and it is probably less than 4 miles to the cemetery. This cemetery is between Plum Orchard and Belgrove and is about a half mile past the Plainview Church. It is on the left side of the road and up a little hill. It is fenced and there is a large sign over the gate stating "Casto's Cemetary".

The cemetery is in good condition and well tended. Although the cemetery rows are rather uneven, we have attempted to notate the markers in rows, starting with the row when you first enter the gate.
