The Price Lucas Family Cemetery, which I visited on 3 September 2015, is located on Sand Creek ridge in Lincoln County, WV. Today, this cemetery is popularly known as the Lucas Cemetery or Lucas-Farley Cemetery. To reach the cemetery, drive 3.5 miles up the Big Fork or Laurel Fork of Saw Mill Hollow of Sand Creek. A four-wheel drive vehicle is required. I last visited this cemetery on 12 September 2002.
