Fulks Run area, Rockingham County, Virginia. From the intersection of Route 42 and Route 33 in Harrisonburg, Virginia, take Route 42 North. Go 13.1 miles (which puts you in the town of Broadway) and turn left onto Route 259 (Brocks Gap Road). Go 4 miles past the Fulks Run Grocery on Route 259, you will see the Riverside United Methodist Church on the right. On the left near there across the river is a square dark & light brown house built by David Crider, where his son Jakie Crider now lives. As you face the house, the cemetery is to the right on a knoll near the woods line, about 1/4 mile from the house.
