First the sign at the cemetery in your photo is now the only one left. The one across the gate has been removed since June 2016. Directions: from Weston, WV, go South on I 79, exit 91 go South on US 19 (left), in Walkersville, WV turn right on Walkersville RD (CR44), about 1.6 miles turn left on Abrams Run RD (CR 46), continue to a Y and take the left on Feather Bed, approximately 1.2 miles the road takes a sharp right turn and now look to the left up the driveway a small sign points up to the cemetery about .2 miles. Warners and Wares are buried plus many others. NOTE: Featherbed is mostly 1 lane and passing is very limited so backing to a driveway or a wide spot is necessary. The road is poorly maintained (2017) and the worst I have ever seen.
Also there are Wares buried in the Casto Cemetery which when continuing from the sharp right turn for 1.2 miles watch for a Casto sign on a post, go right .3 miles up the hill. NOTE: Reclose both gates going to and back because livestock will get out and close the cemetery gate too. There are 6 Ware graves there as well as Riffles.
I think both cemeteries are in Braxton County but close to the Lewis County line.

  1. My grand mother Riffle was born a Ware to William McKinley Ware and Matilda Catherine Sims-Ware. My sister-in-law gave me this information and she could not find where either are buried. Does any one have any information about them and any related Wares. I would greatly appreciate any information. I plan to be in WV late may 2016.
