The REESE Family Cem. is located on Grapevine Rd. near Sissonville in the Poca District of Kanawha Co. The property was once the farm of George Washington REESE. Directions to get there-- Take I-77 North from Charleston to the Pocatalico Exit. After exiting turn left toward Sissonville & drive to Grapevine Rd. on your right. Follow this road 1.5 miles where you will see a mobile home on the bank to your left. The cemetery is to the left of the mobile home just off of the edge of the road. The grass was freshly mowed & appears to be maintained by the resident of the mobile home. The cemetery is not fenced & except for the headstones could be mistaken for part of the lawn. Recorded by Richard F. LEGG on 29 May 1987.
