From the Route 18/Route 21 split in west Waynesburg, follow Route
21 West approximately 6.5 miles through the town of Rogersville
to a blinking yellow light. Turn left at the light and continue
for another .4 miles. Make a left on to Hargus Creek Road, passing
by West Greene High School. Follow for 5.2 miles until you come
to the small town of Bluff and a T intersection at the top of a
large hill. Turn left onto Bluff Ridge Road and follow for .1 miles.
Make a right onto Mt. Zion Road. Follow for .7 miles. A house will
be on your left and an access road to a gas well will be on your
right. The Jones family lives in the house and owns the land on
which the cemetery sits. The access road leads eventually the the
gas well and a small hill. Once at the top of this small hill the
cemetery will be visible in the middle of a field.
The road is accessable with a four wheel drive vehicle but depending
on the time of year could be very muddy and deeply rutted. Please
ask permission from the land owner before going to the cemetery.
The cemetery is in poor condition and is not maintained. Trees
and brush have grown around it. All the stones are down and very
difficult to read. Two of the stones only have small portions
that remain legible. I have included portions of a transcription
by Dorothy and James Hennen written in 1968 due to the fact that
the stones today are virtually impossible to read. These entries
are marked with an (*).
I walked the cemetery on 14 Mar 2009. 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.
