Per Jim Reaser: "In earlier years, this cemetery was known as the Bush Cemetery and later changed to the present name [Union Baptist Church Cemetery]. It also has been referred as the Sinking Creek Cemetery."

"The Union Baptist Church Cemetery is located on Sinking Creek, DeKalb District of Gilmer County, West Virginia. Traveling north on the Sinking Creek Road, the cemetery is about two miles past the abandoned town of Lucerne, situated on the left side of the road, near the bottom of a hill. A metal Union Baptist Church Cemetery sign is located on the left side of Sinking Creek Road. The cemetery is plainly visible from the road.

"Just a little past this sign and on the right side of the road the concrete steps are still visible where the Union Baptist Church burned to the ground several years ago."
