RE: mt nebo cemetary tyler co wva
Yes! I do have directions to Mt. Nebo Cemetery. I know Ebenezer and his wife are buried there, but I believe their graves are unmarked. I have bee there many many many times and have read every stone in the place. Did they have stones wen you visited? If so, I could maybe probe for them and uncover them if they've fell over and sunk in the ground. Ebenezer has a son (I believe) in the Catherine Haught Cemetery not far from the Mount Nebo Cemetery. Here are directions to both:

Mount Nebo Cemetery:

Located approximately 500 feet west of the intersection of Kingsley Ridge (County Route 34) and Muddy Creek (County Route 38). 8.1 miles from Middlebourne on the Gorrels Run Road and Kingsley Ridge Road. Fenced and well taken care of.
GPS Location
39 29 46 N
80 47 00 W


Catherine Haught Cemetery:

From West Virginia Route 180 turn onto Elk Fork Road.(County Route 11) Go 8.4 miles to Scale Run Road (which is actually still Elk Fork Road), turn left and go 1.6 miles to Eight Mile Ridge Road. Turn right on Eight Mile Ridge Road and go .5 miles to a cabin on the right. From the cabin walk behind the cabin past a barn, just as you pass the barn (about 200 yards) there is a trail off to the left leading down to the cemetery.(about 400 yards) There are several unmarked graves, some marked with field stones and a few that are unreadable. This cemetery has just recently been cleaned up.
GPS Location
39 30 43 N
80 45 03 W

If you go to Mt. Nebo Cemetery first, from Middlebourne, just keep going on Kingsley Ridge (aka Gorrells Run Rd.) and you will come back up on to a paved road. (the sign will either say Big Run Rd or 8 Mile Ridge Rd., if there is one) Anyhow, when you get to the paved road, go left. Then punch in the GPS coordinates and follow them, until you get to the cabin, from which you will have to walk. You can park at the cabin and then just walk to the edge of the field behind the cabin. There is a trail that veers to the left. Follow it, and you will go past a treestand, right past the treestand is the cemetery. Eb's son, Charley, is buried to the right as you walk into the cemetery.

Hope I've helped!
If you don't have a GPS, I can write you more detailed directions to the Catherine Haught Cemetery if you'd like.
