Old Higgins Cemetery

Located on Deadfall Rd. off of Gladys Fork Rd.  between Smithfield and Mannington:

Deadfall Rd. no longer exists on the maps but cuts through a meadow and then up a hill.  It is hard to tell if it is in Marion or Wetzel as it is about on the line.  The cemetery has some trees fallen over into it but is walkable.  There are some marked graves but several of the markings are gone.  This is not a full reading.  There are some Villers buried there also.  Reading was taken Aug. 25, 2002 by R.E. Miller.
