J. Parsons Cemetery

Submitted by Frank & Sharon Hodorowski.

Turn off WV Rt. 2 onto Burch Ridge Co. road (29) at Wayne's Carry-out. Taking this road, which is very winding and steep near the river, it levels out somewhat at the top. Staying on this road you will come to an intersection on the left with Rines Ridge road (76). Go through this intersection and the next road on the right is Parson's Rd.(82) about 500 feet beyond that is a white house with red barn. . Behind and to the left of the house is a badly overgrown clump of trees. Supposedly there are 15 / 20 burials.
