Racey Cemetery, Back Creek Rd., WV.


Located off of Rt. 259 from Gore, VA, make a left past the Shiloh Cem. in Lehew, WV. Head down the hill until you have to go either right or left onto Back Creek Rd. Take the right and about 2 miles on the right you will come to a couple of houses in the right, the second one has a floral nursery. Between the first house and its barn there is a small dirt road that leads into the hill behind the house. After going across the little creek (Loman Branch) you will come to a chain gate. This is about where you have to park your vehicle if you want to go any further. Follow this one lane road for about 1/3 of a mile and the cemetery will be on the right.
