It looks like the Old School Baptist Cemetery is located near the Locktown Stone Church Cemetery (where my ancestories are buried, including Rev. Thomas Curtis) which is a bit southeast of the Route 12 and 519 intersection where Locktown Sergeantsville Road and Locktown Kingwood Rd intersect: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&GRid=93...; .
I was there a year ago and couldn’t find the cemetery, but now that I take the time to read the findagrave description I see the cemetery is around the corner from the stone church, perhaps 100 yard west along the creek. I think I remember reading a small church was build of wood in Locktown for those that did not want to travel up to Baptistown for services in the mid 1700s before the stone church several yards away was build in 1814. That would explain why the cemetery is a distance from the current church location. I think mention of the original location was in the book "Baptists in Kingwood" by Stephen Zdepski (nonreference at the Hunterdon County Library).
The other Baptistown Church Cemetery is located where Al says, just north of Rt 12 on Route 519.
Posted here, but the map embedded on that page is wrong: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=19...;
