From Waynesburg follow Route 21 West through the town of Rogersville to a blinking yellow light. Bear left at the light and continue for another half mile. Make a left on to Hargus Creek Road, passing by West Greene High School. Follow for approximately 4 miles. Turn right onto Fordyce Road and follow approximately 1 mile. Look for a small log cabin with a red roof on your right. The path to the cemetery goes past the cabin and up a hill. The cemetery may be hard to see from the road if the leaves are on the trees.
The cemetery is still maintained and is surrounded by a fence with a gate. Some stones are worn badly from age, and some have fallen. I also found one unidentified fieldstone marker, two completely illegible stones and few bases with no stones. The last burial took place here in 1985.
I walked the cemetery on Nov 25, 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.
