Cleek-Poling Cemetery


Directions: From Charleston travel I-77 North to Kenna exit 124. Turn right on Kentuck Road (CR-19), travel approximately 3.6 miles, the Kentuck road appears to end, turn left and stay on the Kentuck road traveling approximately .9 mile, there’s a house on the right side of the road and the cemetery is about a half mile over into the field and it’s visible from the road. Recently a narrow fence trail was installed from the road to the cemetery. Should walk and not drive when ground is muddy, etc.
I always park at the Goshen Baptist Church parking lot, walk the side of the road until I‘m at the backend of the Goshen Church cemetery & cross the road to walk the field trail to the Cleek - Poling Cemetery.
The markers are read right to left.
