Mills Cemetery

From Wayne, WV -
Take Route 37 East, go about 5 miles to an Ashland station
Turn right, go up Petercave Road about 1/2 mile, Turn onto "Edd's Branch"  
Go up about 3/4 mile, to the second old board barn (the one on the right)
Turn right, off the main road, go past the barn on your right, and out to the cemetery

The road, at this writing, is in good shape.

May 12, 2014
  Today, Dad and I mowed some of the cemetery.  Dad finished all of the large mowing.  I trimmed around the stones with the small mower until I ran out of gas.

  We should get it finished tomorrow.

  Then you can come and decorate when you wish.

  The road is in good shape, thanks to the 2012 applications of gravel.  You may drive out easily in any vehicle you choose.

  The cemetery needs some maintenance work that Dad can't do.  Mainly, the dead tree in the back need removing.  Are you interested in undertaking the project?

Unique View   This is taken from a point of land to the south east, throough all the trees.  A view that you don't see very often.

September 1972 Meeting
A look back to a September meeting, with dinner and preaching and singing and visiting.  I think I have all of them up now, that I took that day.  Mostly...,

  Donate via Paypal   If you wish to support the maintenance of the cemetery, I've made a donation page for your convenience.  It seems to be working okay.  The maintenance fund is for mowing the cemetery and any repairs and other maintenance such as gravel for the access road.

This site is devoted to the Mills Family Cemetery in Wayne County, in western West Virginia.  I hope to have news, events, the mowing schedule, and historical images posted upon these pages.

View from west hill, about half way along the
                road.

Earlier in the spring, before the grass got really green and growing.  This is a nice eye-level view.

Road to the cemetery

The road is in good shape this year, as you drive down past the barn.

As you leave the cemetery

As as you bid the cemetery good bye.

How to lock the gate.

How to lock the gate - wrap the chain around the post
and hitch the chain on the nail...,


Latch the chain.

and hook it through the slot on the gate.

Dead Tree

This tree, despite the green in it, is dead and needs to be removed. 
It's too large a job for Dad.  Would anyone like to undertake this?
The tree has grown up over a couple of stones and you can hardly get
to them.

Some of the grave stones are leaning this way or that.  A few need resetting real
soon now.  One or two have fallen over.  Think about bringing a shovel / resetting
equipment if you plan to visit the cemetery before long.  I don't know how you would
go about resetting a stone.  Anyone have an idea?

Daffodils Blooming

2013 - Here's a treat for you!  Back when the Old House still stood, there was a row of
daffodils on the west side of the house.  When Uncle Willard Stultz got in a bulldozer to build his pond (off to the left), it spread daffodil bulbs far and wide.  Since then, they spread even further. 

I hope you've enjoyed your virtual visit to the cemetery.  Come visit in person Real Soon Now.

If you can trace any members of your family who have been buried in the Mills Cemetery, please
write me so I can make a listing of them.  Especially those whose stones are field stones.

There are also a couple of collections of old family photos on Facebook that have got underway
in the past year or so.  Eventually, I will get links to them on here.  I did say "eventually", didn't I?

A distant consin photographed all the stones in the cemetery a couple of years ago.  You can find
the pictures on  <http://findagrave.com>
