Brown Cemetery

Submitted by Bud Wilson

Directions by Bud Wilson (May 2005):

Photograph of Brown CemeteryOff the Fairmont (Marion County) downtown exit of I-79 take Route 310, sometimes referred to as old Grafton Road. About 14 or 15 miles to just across the Taylor County line, at the top of a hill on a sharp curve & on top of the hill on right side of road is where the cemetery is located. There is an excess gate and a pair of short steps to the gate to get into field to climb hill to cemetery. There are a number of residences on the opposite side of road, where you could get directions.

From Grafton & Fetterman end, take Route 310, it's about 4 miles as best I remember. I'm sorry I can't be more concise, but it's been years since I've been there and many of the landmarks are gone, but anyone in that area should be able to help.

The photos include the old Church of Christ building on Grafton Road which was below the cemetery.
The church is not longer there. The other pictures were taken by Bud Wilson about 1975.
