HOWERY-GRAY CEMETERY
Off Parkway onto Graysville Road and after passing a large
Pond on left, and past the next driveway, cemetery on a hill on left
N 37 00.221  W 80 08.453
There is a wrought iron fence around it
Documented 22 March 2009 by Genevieve C. Starkey
Thank Charlotte Lampey and Dorothy Epperly for telling us of this one

We were told there was a Young buried here, but did not see the stone.  The cemetery is very overgrown and stones down, so possibly is hidden.
