Sarepta is a small church located near the Inez area of Warren County, where it sits on one acre of land with a small cemetery in the rear.  The church is currently undergoing some remodeling, but the graves are well-kept and reflect a varied range of dates.  The oldest grave is from 1913, another is from 1925, but then it apparently was only used for burials occasionally until the 1980ís, when the cemetery became used  more frequently. There are 34 graves in this cemetery, most of them bearing the ALSTON surname.
