Submitter:Merry Anne Pierson

This cemetery is located on a bend in the Hughes River off rte 47, east of Freeport. A road numbered 47/5 Wirt County 
leads down to the river.  The actual cemetery is on private land owned by the above stated man. The cemetery is on the 
south side of the Hughes River and is accessible by boat or in dry seasons by four-wheel drive. The Hughes River 
Wildlife Management Area borders it on the south and east. There is land access from somewhere through the Wildlife 
area because Mr. Yeager stated that someone keeps the cemetery property mowed and it isn't always done by him. He 
doesn't know who does it but they don't get a gate key from him so they have to be accessing it from the wildlife area 
side of the river.

See scanned map for better description.

I've included a picture that shows the cemetery from a wider angle. It appears to me that there are many smaller stones 
or pieces of stones and that there are more graves than markers. I have not been able to personally go to this cemetery 
but keep trying. These pictures were taken in November of 2001.

Here is the Perrin genealogy as I've traced it.
