From the Route 21/Route 18 split in west Waynesburg follow Route 21 West approximately 6.5 miles through the town of Rogersville and to a blinking yellow light. Turn left on to Route 18 South and travel 12.3 miles. As you enter the town of New Freeport, turn right on to Deep Valley Road and follow for .5 miles. On your right will be a dirt lane and a gate with the word "Cemetery" on it. As you walk up the dirt lane you will see a deep gulley on your left. The cemetery is located to the right side of the dirt lane.
The cemetery is partially surrounded by a fence and has a gate at its entrance. The cemetery is in good condition and is maintained on a regular basis. Burials still occur here but very infrequently. Only a few stones are down or are difficult to read. I also found two unidentifiable markers.
I have included a few enteries from a transcription written for this cemetery by Dorothy and James Hennen on 27 Oct 1963 for stones that can no longer be located today. Those enteries are marked with an (*).
I walked the cemetery on 8 November 2008 and 11 April 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.
