Directions to the Joshua Kight Cemetery (Mineral County-Elk District)
Starting out in Keyser, WV from 220 turn onto West Piedmont Street.
At DStreet (one way) turn left and go to Fort Ave. Turn right and then left onto Green Mountain Road 46/4.
Follow approximately 6.0 miles to Tasker Road 4. Turn right onto Tasker Road and go 2.4 miles to a gravel road
and turn right onto it. The gravel road is at the apex of a near hairpin curve that Tasker Road makes to the left.
After 0.5 mile you'll approach the Bean Farm house and barn. The road curves to the right between the barn and the house and goes up the hill.
The cemetery will be on your left near the road and clearly visible. There are several sections or separate cemeteries all located here. The largest fenced in area is the Bean cemetery which is east of all the others, the next largest is the Kight cemetery also fenced. Adjacent to the Kight cemetery is the Moore area and nearest to the road is the Our cemetery. In between the latter two fenced small cemeteries are some stones with the surname Ashby. The Kight cemetery has the most tombstones visible and is well kept.
Returning to Keyser will be a reverse order of the above until Green Mountain terminates near South E street, take it to West Piedmont and then on to 220.
The cemeteries are on private (Bean) property so be sure to ask for permission at either the main house or the house at the terminus of the road just past the cemeteries where the road curves to the right.
I finished fiddling with the numbers and here's the location of the Kight Cemetery as best as I can determine. The raw fix is what I got from my Garmin GPS receiver. The calculated fix is the raw fix plus or minus the average delta from the other two fixes I took as compared to the location I was able to determine from TopoZone.com maps.
Elevation = 2091 feet.
