Marpel Family Cemetery, near Capon Bridge, WV.

From the Central United Methodist Church in Loom, WV., head down Timber Mt. Rd. about 2 miles or so. You will see the Emmart Farm sign on the right. Go down the driveway and you will have to ask premission because this is on private property. First you will need a 4WD vehicle. The cemetery is located about 1 1/2 mile from the farm house. Follow the cow pasture road until you come to a red gate. The road at the top of the hill divides, the right takes you further down the pasture to the red gate. The left fork takes you to the cemetery and a little further to the old Marpel home(?).
