Byrd Cemetery (Kites Run Road)

Contributed by Teresa Fordyce

Take Rt. 47 East out of Parkersburg for about 9 miles to Kites Run Road. Turn left onto Kites Run and travel for 0.7 of a mile. The entrance to the cemetery will be on your left. This is a family cemetery on property owned by the Byrd family. It is well maintained and still active. I walked and transcribed this cemetery on May 23, 2003.
