'Fayette County West Virginia'

North of Oak HIll, heading west on Route 612 through Scarbro, Dothan and almost to Mossy there is a sign on the left hand side of the road that says Lick Fork. Turn right up that gravel road. A short way up there is a sharp turn to the right which will lead you to a church established by James Willard Coleman. Around the church are buried many of the Coleman ancestors including Mary Jane Stewart who died in her early 30s. She was the wife of James Willard's son George Nathaniel Coleman.

If you return to the Lick Fork Road and continue on up the Mountain eventually you would come to somewhat of a parking area across from a couple of out buildings. (There now are gates that prevent unauthorized individuals from entering this far). To reach a second Coleman/Smith Cemetery you must cross the field and head up the hill. At the top of the hill the Cemetery is well maintained and fenced off. There is a Coleman descendant caretaker for this cemetery who lives in Kentucky as well as his cousin who lives in Scarbro. There is also available a plat map that outlines the various individuals buried there.
