Landes-Alt Cemetery

The Landes-Alt Cemetery is located on Cave Mountain near Landes, West Virginia.

GPS coordinates: unavailable at this time, but this is high on the priority list.

The cemetery is on private land owned by the Stump family and is inaccessible without specific permission from the Stump family. The road to the cemetery is off West of Bethel Church Road (see Bethel Church of the Brethren on US Rt. 220 north of Landes, WV) and is accessible only by a 4-wheel-drive vehicle. Also, locked gates will be encountered and the land is posted as 'No Trespassing' due to its desirability for deer hunting in the fall.

The cemetery is especially important to the Landes family because it is the final resting place of Abraham Scott Landes (Sr.) and could also be the site of the graves of John Landes, Elizabeth Peacock Landes, and Catherine Buckley Landes. Other Landes family members buried here are Wilbert H. Landes (son of Abraham Scott Landes), Floyd Landes (son of John William and Ellen Landes), and L. A. Landes (age 2; probably the child of John William and Ellen Landes).
