Beaver Creek Baptist Cemetery, now inactive, is located on the south side of Emerald Road, to the west of Flat Branch Road. The property is now owned by Wheatfield Township and is well maintained. It covers a city block sized area with burials dotted around the area. There could be other burials here with no stones in sight. Leaves could be hiding fallen stones. Those that are remaining in view are mostly in poor shape.

There is a rusted 38 inch wide, 74 inch long, 36 inch high fenced and gated area towards the middle. A probe felt no stones in there. There are now young trees, planted by Nature, growing inside the fenced area.

S/w means Shares stone with. We did not see any reference to veterans.
