Riley Cemetery, near Capon Bridge, WV.

From Bloomery drive East, make a right onto Sandy Hollow Rd., drive to the far end of the road and you will come to a gate and an underwater bridge. This is most likely where you will have to park. Go around the gate and walk down the road another 200 yards or so, and you will see this partially fenced cemetery on the right about 30 yards up the side of the hill.

  • George L. Riley: died Oct 26, 1863; "Aged 22 yrs 5 mos 19 ds".
  • 10 unmarked grave stones.
