Callaway Cemetary

Submitted by: Pat Wall Daniels
Callaway Cemetery at the old Methodist Church, Glen Daniel, WV
Directions from the WV Turnpike, take Harper Road exit , turn right on Rt. 3 W. to Glen Daniel, turn left on old Logan Turnpike (may have another name) old Church is on the right on side of hill. There is a gate at bottom of drive as someone is living in the old building now. The cemetery is well kept, although before the building was occupied as a residence, there was some vandalism to some of the stones. Conditions were much better when I was there the 1st week of May, 2001. This was my first effort doing this with the assistance of my husband Larry.
Go through the cemetery gate and right down the hill. I started working across the bottom row:
