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.
