Take Ruth Rd from the main street in Madison, VA, about 5 miles, past Redish Acres, go past a fork in the road, past a clearing, down a hill, past a log cabin. At the bottom of the hill, there's a white house, the road curves, the cemetery will be on your left, before the next house.
The cemetery cannot be seen from the road. You must climb a fence, walk across the farm field, toward a clump of trees. The cemetery is under the trees, surrounded by a barbed wire fence. It's located on someone's farm, and is in good condition.
I have transcribed from my findings when I visited this cemetery on 10/5/2000 and copied the inscriptions of all the stones.
