Maddox Cemetery

Contributed by Teresa Fordyce

Take WV State Rt. 68 South out of Parkersburg to intersection of SR 68 and SR 892. Take SR 892 to County Road 30 (Jewell Road). Turn right onto Jewell Road and go up the hill past the school. Take the next right, then turn left on the next road (Blenwood Drive) bearing right. The cemetery is on private property behind houses in a wooded area. Please ask the property owner's for permission to walk across their property to the cemetery. This is an old family cemetery that is no longer used. It is not well maintained and has been subject to vandalism. The property was owned by the Maddox family in the early 1800’s. There are several unmarked graves, broken stones and unreadable markers.
