Old Bethel United Brethren Church Cemetery (Page 1)

 

Old Bethel United Brethren Church        Bethel Cemetery Gate

 

Location

Keezletown area, Rockingham County, Virginia. From Court Square in Harrisonburg, take Route 33 east. Go 5.5 miles & turn left onto Road 620 (Indian Trail Road). Go 1.7 miles & Road 620 turns to the right (name changes to Mt. Valley Road). Go 5.4 miles & turn right on Road 722 (Armentrout Path). Cemetery is on the right & church is on the left side of road.
 

Notes

Cemetery is well maintained and surrounded by an iron fence. Sections were re-recorded as previously layed out - an area was marked off in fifty foot sections. Starting at the gate entrance, rows were recorded from front to back, and headstones recorded from left to right. There are dozens of unmarked fieldstones and broken stones. These are mainly located in the central section of the cemetery. Many of these stones are in German with one of them showing a death in 1797. Also in the central section of the cemetery is an open area which obviously contains many unmarked graves.
