Many times funerals and burials in southern West Virginia take place in hard to get to places. These pictures are just an example. We could not get the coffin to the grave-site from the closest route, so the hearse driver had to get as close as he could from the backside of the cemetery and the pall bearers had to carry the coffin several yards. The graves are hard to dig often with huge rocks and tree roots to deal with on the side of a mountain like this grave was.
