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 4.4 miles. At the bottom of a large hill you will see Fordyce Road on your right. A stone house sits at this intersection. When you pull in the driveway, the cemetery will be located to the left up in a field on a hill.
The home and land is currently owned by Richard J. Cerar. 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. There is evidence of an old fence and gate that at one time would have surrounded it. All but two stones are down.
I walked the cemetery on 28 Feb 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.
