From Waynesburg follow Route 21 West approximately 6.5 miles through the town of Rogersville and to a blinking yellow light. Turn left onto Route 18 South and travel 4.6 miles. The cemetery will be on the left side of the road across a small stream. There is a place to park and bridge to walk across to access the cemetery. Valley Chapel Church is directly across the road from the cemetery.
The cemetery is in good condition and is maintained on a regular basis. I found two illegible markers and one fieldstone marker. Burials still occur here, although infrequently. The last was in 2005.
I walked the cemetery on Oct 26, 2008. 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.
