John E. Thompson Cemetery

McConnell, West Virginia
Route 10

From Logan Courthouse, take Route 10 south, several miles to McConnell.

Directions: This Cemetery is Located at McConnell, West Virginia. A few miles south of Logan Court House.

There are four cemeteries (known by me) at McConnell. Facing east on Rt 10 to the far right is the larger public cemetery. The next hilltop to the left (north) holds the Hinchman Cemetery. On the next hilltop to the left of the Hinchman Cemetery is the John E. Cemetery. This is the one we will deal with here. On the next hilltop to the left of the John E. Thompson Cemetery there is another Cemetery. I have not indexed that cemetery.
