EMMART (Andrew ) CEMETERY, near Hanging Rock, WV.


From Capon Bridge, take Rt. 50 past Hanging Rock, make a right onto North River Rd. (50/21), go up the steep hill for about .5 miles; make a left into the Golden Acres Subdivision Section I; then go about .2 miles along this dirt road, at the top of the hill and on your right you will see this cemetery.

Some people have known this cemetery as the Emmert Family Cemetery, but after looking at the stones, Jacob H. Emmert was one of the last people buried there. One of the first ones that I can tell that was buried here was Eliza Emmart, making this the Emmart Family Cemetery.
