From Waynesburg, follow Route 21 West approximately 5 1/2 miles. Turn right onto Rush Run Road (TR478). There is an old red brick one room schoolhouse at the entrance to Rush Run. The cemetery is located on the right hand side of Rush Run about 50 yards after turning off Route 21 and sits right on the road bank itself just below a fence line. It is about 1 1/4 mile east of Rogersville.
This cemetery is very small and may be difficult to see depending on the time of year. It's best distinguishing feature is a tall obilisk. I found it in very poor condition and is not maintained. Several stones are broken and fallen. The cemetery is surrounded by trees and brush.
I walked the cemetery on 13 Apr 2007. This transcription is complete and includes all existing stones. I also have digital photographs of all the stones as well as many views of the cemetery itself and would share them with anyone interested.
