Pringle Cemetery



Location: On a hill overlooking Fairplain, Jackson County, WV

Directions: On I-77, take the Fairplain exit; go north on Rt 21; turn left on first road north/east of I-77, Rt 21/26 - Parchment Valley Road/Shinn Lane - NOT the entrance ramp to I-77! Drive about 600' (there is a large industrial building on the left side of the road) and you should see a path/dirt road on the right that goes up a hill, marked as Shinn Lane on the map, but there was no street sign. Drive up to the top of this small hill and turn left on the road/path and drive back to the cemetery. We visited in May 2015 and someone had recently mowed the grass, but I do not know how often they do this.

Marvin Robie, JoAnn Jones, and Betty Briggs visited the cemetery on April 28, 2015. Many of the stones are newer, indicating someone in the family placed them recently, not near the time of death. The information on the new stones does not always agree with the data shown in the Cemetery Book, which is a reading of the cemetery in the 1980s. Info in brackets [] was added by Betty Briggs, from research data. Photographs were taken of all markers, and transcribed by Betty Briggs. If you would like a better quality picture, contact Betty.
