McClure Family Cemetery
Sod, Lincoln County, West Virginia
Lat: 38° 12' 57"N, 81° 56' 25"W
Submitted by Lisa L. Luther, Feb 21, 2005 [firstname.lastname@example.org] Total records = 16.
Directions: From the Sod Post Office take Garretts Bend Road to the top of the first hill with the very bright green house on the left. Take the road on the right (across the road from the green house). This road goes up a very steep hill and eventually leads to a crossroads. At the crossroads take the 'middle' road, which is the driveway to a white house.
You must ask the owners of the white house for directions and permission to go to the McClure Cemetery since you need to cross their property to get there. Definitely take a walking stick and a camera. The scenery is beautiful and peaceful. The best time to go is mid to late fall to avoid mosquitoes and other things that bite.
The inscriptions listed here are abbreviated versions of the actual text on the headstones. All military markers will be noted with † beside the name. There were many graves with unmarked stones.
I walked and read this cemetery in Oct of 2004.
