Bud Cemetery
Wyoming County, West Virginia

Lat: 37 31' 54N, Lon: 81 22' 33W

Contributed by Lita L. Thorne, Aug 15, 2003 [lita@campus.net]. Total records = 180.

When you enter the small hamlet of Bud, WV on Rt. 10 North. Look for a store/gas station and cluster of homes on the left. Turn left between the homes on the paved road and follow the road, past the church. At the end, veer left. The road is narrow and will turn to dirt, become steep in places and can be very rugged (depending on the rain). Head up the mountain and follow to the end. The cemetery lies at the end of this trail.

The Bud Cemetery is still an active cemetery for the community of Bud WV. It is often referred to as the Bud Mountain Cemetery, because of where it is.

As a young boy, Billy FM Thornton and a cousin Amon Rowe, helped Garrett P Whitt bring many of the large stone up the mountain, with the help of a horse and sled, which were used to build the Whitt Tomb.

This cemetery was surveyed and researched by my father Francis Morrison (Billy) Thornton and myself. This listing is complete as of Apr 27, 2002.
