Search Cook Mountain Cemetery:

Located on Cook Mountain (Bald Knob); access past Twilight on Pond Fork. Travel to Lindytown, cross bridge, bear left then right, and follow gravel road to top of the mountain, now an inactive strip mine. There were three graveyards found on this mountain. This cemetery is in a copse of trees visible to the left with approximately 25 graves, mostly unmarked or illegible. The sign says 1865-1905, but Mary Catherine Walker Cook was buried here in 1861, and probably some of her children before that year.

The second cemetery (Cook Mountain #2) has 2 obvious stones approximately 50 yards past the original cemetery, with evidence it was once fenced in. The third burial ground on this mountain is the lone headstone of William Chapman Cook, which is in a copse of trees visible from the top of the mountain by looking to the right and is one hillside over from the original Cook Cemetery.

Very old graveyard in fair condition; large tree has fallen on right side, covering some headstones; the road up the mountain and on top is passable with 4-wheel drive vehicle or skilled driver.
