Cove Creek Cemetery



This cemetery is located in Cove Creek. Coming from Glen Daniel, get on to Saxon/Posey Rd. 
Follow it to the bridge. After you cross the bridge turn right. About a 1/2 mile bare to the left.
onto Cove Creek. When you get to Cove Creek go to the first right, after the 1st house on the
left there will be a road on the left that goes up a small hill. It goes straight to the cem. It is 
driveable with a car. 
I noticed in some people's family history on the net, they have this cem. listed as McGinnis
Cem. But it is the Cove Creek Cem. If you notice on the stone of Daniel Shumate it states the
Cove Creek Cem.

Located up in Cove Creek, Saxon Rd. Raleigh County, WV.
