This cemetery is at the Intersection of US Hwy 17, Edgehill Rd. (Rt. 612) and Ware's Bridge Rd. (Rt. 602). It is across from the Hermitage Baptist Church.

This cemetery is in a rural, agricultural area and the nearest town would be Saluda, VA a few miles to the southeast on Highway 17. This cemetery is located across the road from Hermitage Baptist Church and adjacent to a private home.

I assume maintenance of the cemetery (which is in excellent condition) is done by the property owners or descendents. This cemetery dates back to the 1890s.

The transcription was done from photos taken from outside the cemetery wall by Criss Faison in November 2004. A little research on my part reveals that the individuals buried here are William T. and Sarah Richardson and their relatives (children, grandchildren, in-laws).
