Total records = 6.
Route 19 north or south, take route 60 exit, toward Midland Trail, follow
60 to 41 South, approx. 4 mi. will see sign for Chestnut Knob Road follow
to Buery Mtn road, (dirt road) follow for approx.4 mi dirt road on left
(Tunnel road no sign) .5 tenths of mi. will see sign for Persinger Cemetery,
park and follow old road on right through woods about 2-3 tenths of mi.
Will run into cemetery. Cemetery used to have fence, all that is left
now are posts and sign that says,"Persinger Cemetery, Clairmont WV".
This represents all that have markers that are readable, some are only
marked with crosses, no writing, approx. 3 unmarked stones.
No idea of ownership, it is near an old cleaning plant for coal, that
is down on the river, but this cemetery is straight above the cleaning
plant on top of the mountain. It is in fair shape, had fence around
it but all that is left are the posts and sign. Does not appear to be
accepting new burials.
Daniel Sumpter and I compiled these records Jun 27, 2004, by going
to the cemetery and recording all information available from the headstones.
