Kirkhart-King Cemetery
Ford, Roane County, West Virginia

1305 Granny Creek Road, Ford WV

Lat: 38° 33' 17"N, Lon: 81° 11' 27"W

From the intersection of County Hwy 29 in Amma, drive east onto I-79 and continue for about 3.8 miles and turn right or south onto Granny Creek Road, and continue on this road for about 2.6 miles. Cemetery will be on the north or left side of the road.

This cemetery was established in 1890 or earlier as community burial ground. It is now referred to as the Kirkhart King Cemetery. I am not sure who owns and maintains it.

It is one acre in size with no restrictions as to type and placing or markers. It is fenced, not landscaped. Earliest stone dated 1890. This cemetery is currently in excellent condition with many new headstones.

I compared my reading with that of a WPA reading on Aug 22, 1940. It has been maintained better since the WPA reading, which said it was in poor condition, with only about 43 burials.

I walked and read this cemetery in Sep of 2006 and Aug of 2008, this includes all existing and legible headstone and marker readings at that time.
