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 Mount Zion Road. From this point on GPS coordinates will need to be used in order to find the cemetery. It sits on property owned by Mr. Rudy Marisa. Ask for permission from the land owner before going to the cemetery.
The cemetery is in poor condition and is no longer maintained. It is located deep in the woods and large trees have grown in around it. A few of the stones are down, but most are still legible. I found only one stone that was totally illegible.
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.
