Joe's Run Cemetery

(As read by Bonnie Simons Hendershot, November 2002; transcribed by B. Kay Melvin)

Directions to Joe's Run Cemetery. Drive Rt. 33 east from the junction of Rt. 33 (Ripley-Spencer road) & State Rt. 21 (Ripley-Parkersburg road)(some maps show this as CR 21) in downtown Ripley for 6 miles and turn left on CR-14 (Joe's Run); go 1/2 mile to the "Y" intersection; take left fork and go 1 block. The Church used to be on the right in the bottom until the watershed took it out. On the right, straight up a very steep hill, the cemetery sits on top of the point of the ridge (there are old paths and 4-wheeler paths leading up to it). The cemetery is kept OK for where it is and people are still buried there occasionally.
