Contributed by Loretta Davis, Apr 06, 2009, last edited May 20, 2009 [had_lod@verizon.net]. Total records = 186.

From Richmond, VA, take I-64 east for about 20 miles to exit 211 (Rt. 106). Go right (which is south) on Rt. 106. Emmaus will be on the right in about a quarter mile.

This cemetery is owned and maintained by the Emmaus Baptist Church. The cemetery was established sometime after 1852.

We found the grounds in excellent condition. The cemetery is still being used for burial. The church cemetery committee provided us with names of people who had no stone.

Hawthorne Davis and I walked and read this cemetery in Jul 01, 2008. It contains all existing and legible stones and markers at that time.
