Location

McGaheysville, Rockingham County, Virginia. From Courthouse in Harrisonburg, Virginia, take Route 33 East. Go 7.9 miles and turn right onto Route 996 (McGaheysville Road). Go 2.7 miles and turn right onto Route 843 (Cemetery Road). Go about 2/10ths mile and cemetery is on the right side of road.

Notes

Cemetery is well maintained. On 8 April 1931 John W. Wayland made the following notation, "I judge that a number of these bodies were moved here from the old graveyard." There are many old graves in Section 2 and 3 that he has mentioned. The cemetery rows are recorded from the road to the back (east to west) and the headstones are recorded from left to right (south to north). Section 1 is the most southerly section. Section 2 is in the middle. Section 3 is the most northerly section. Section 4 is behind Section 1, 2, and 3. And Section 5, is behind Section 4.
