Ephesus Church Cemetery - Jackson County, WV


Location: About three miles south of Fairplain on the east side of I-77

Directions: On I-77, take the Fairplain Exit and go South on Route 21 about a mile. Turn left on Co Hwy 21/28, also known as Grasslick Creek, go under the interstate and turn/continue right (south) on the road about 2 miles. The church is on the right side of the road, the cemetery is high up on the left. You can drive up to it.

The cemetery is fenced and well tended but it is on a very steep hill. There are 5 stones near the gate, the rest are farther up the hill. There is a concrete retaining wall part way up the hill, with headstones set into the wall, and the hill is not so steep above it. A friendly dog followed us up and stayed with us the whole time we were there. Photos were taken of all the markers, starting at the bottom and going up, back and forth although the 'rows' are not very straight. Read and photographed by Marvin Robie, JoAnn Jones and Betty Briggs on May 12, 2006. For a larger resolution picture, email your request to me at Betty Briggs
