DIRECTIONS:
North on State Route 2 from St. Marys - 7.4 miles to Ben's Run; right on Tyler County Route 5; 1 mile to Pleasants County Route 7; 5.1 miles to County Route 36; 0.6 miles to County Route (Delta Route) 5; right 0.3 mile to cemetery on left. Located beside Beech Run Church. Most Monuments date in the 1800ís to the early 1900ís. A few broken monuments and some that are leaning. Several are almost illegible due to black mold or moss covering the writing. A solution of water and ammonia will take the black off of the stones but you need a soft brush and lots of water to really clean them.

There is a laminated sign attached to a fence post (Back right hand corner) that reads:
