Parks Hollow Cemetery, Capon Bridge, WV.

Lat:3917.399N; Lon:07828.485W; Elev:1074ft.

Located after descending Schafenaker's Mt. on Rt. 50 going west is a valley called Parks Hollow. On a hill north of an old house is an old cemetery. As you can see the cemetery is overrun in weeds and tall grass. Once in awhile, it does get cleaned up, by family members, community group, or a Boy Scout working on his Eagle rank.
Some of the people have known this cemetery to called the LOVETT CEMETERY, due to it being located in Lovett Flats.
