Off of Rt. 50 in Capon Bridge, travel about 3 miles south on Christian Church Road until you get to a 90 degree left turn in the road. Instead of making the turn, go straight ahead on the dirt road until you get to a 90 degree right-hand turn. This gravesite is down this field next to the trees about 100 yards on private property.
