From Interstate 64 in Cabell County, WV take Exit 11 and go South on Rout 10 for about 0.9 miles or till you come to Mt. Union Rd.  Turn Right onto this road and go 2.4 miles or till you come to Mt. Union Church.  At the church the road forks.  Take the Left fork and go on up the hill to the next road that turns to the Right.  Go about 0.3 miles or till you come to the first gravel road on your Right.  Turn onto this gravel road and go to the gate.  The gate is locked so you will have to walk the rest of the way to the cemetery.  The cemetery is about 0.8  miles from the locked gate.  Just stay on the gravel road and it ends at the Owens Cemetery.  Go past this cemetery for about 100 to 200 yards or till you come to the next high point.  The cemetery is on your Right side up in the woods (about 25 yards).  The cemetery is not fenced and is very overgrown with weeds and brush and has been abandon.
