Start at the intersection of county road 46 (Irish Ridge Road) and US 250, near Pleasant Valley, Marshall County, West Virdinia (N39 deg 55.001 min, W80 deg 37.5641 min). Proceed east on Irish Ridge Road to the intersection with Stull Run (N39 deg. 55.068 min, W80 deg 36.180 min). Turn north on Stull Run Road. Cemetery is about 100 yards off Stull Run Road.

Additional information to find the cemetery thanks to Duane Akeright who visited the site:
I would give the town/village of Pleasant Valley as the starting place, since Stulls Run Road intersects with Highway 150. The GPS coordinates of the intersection are: (N39 deg 55.008 min)(W80 deg 37.56 min). When I turned off Highway 150 at Pleasant Valley on to Stulls Run Road, I followed the road until I reached "N39 deg. 55.068 min, W80 deg. 36.180 min", where there is a "Y" in the road, and there are several mail boxes on posts. I did not measure the distance from the Pleasant Valley intersection to the mail boxes with my vehicle odometer. The road from that intersection starts out wide, but narrows down to where it would be impossible for two oncoming vehicles to pass one another. At the mail boxes, I turned to the left and went up a slight incline. The cemetery is on the top of a small hill, and I think on private property. The big posts were still there, but there was no wire on them to form a fence. That road is actually a driveway to a residence, which is beyond the cemetery and around a curve to the left. I visited with the owner of the residence for a while. He said that he had cut down and removed some of the brush around the grave markers. The markers are not placed in straight rows as they are in many cemeteries today; they are just "here and there". I did not try to count them all. I know that there are at least 15 markers.
