Wade Embry Cemetery


From Morgantown, take 231 north to 79. Go out to the H Dockery Road and turn right. Turn Left on Brooklyn-Chapel Union Road, and the cemetery is in woods in middle of field fairly close to road, on the right. Coming from Chapel Union on the Brooklyn-Chapel Union Road, the cemetery is in the growth of trees on the left before reaching the Dockery Road. If you reach the Dockery Road, turn around because you missed it.

Going to the cemetery required parking on the side of the road and then climbing through 2 sets of barbed wire, one at the road and one at the trees. It is completely overgrown and there is no way to know if we found all the stones.
