Kernachan Cemetery



Surveyed by Orlan Irons - 5 Apr 1989

To reach this cemetery from Florence, turn off AL 20 (Savannah Highway), onto Lauderdale 8 (Gunwaleford Road); go 6.9 miles and turn right on a paved road; go 0.2 mile and turn left on a farm road; follow this road for 1.0 mile, until you come to a pasture gap; walk down this road (west) 215 yards, until you come to another pasture gap. Turn right (north) and walk 180 yards in this pasture. There is a gas line that crosses the pasture going in the direction you must walk. When you have walked 180 yards north, turn to your left and walk into the woods 50 yards to get to the cemetery. The distance you walk, in good weather and with permission from Robert Walker, you probably could drive almost to the cemetery. This cemetery is listed on the 1987 Lauderdale County Highway Map, and some older maps, as CUNNINGHAM Cemetery. The legal description is SE4, NE4, Sec 18, T3S, R13W.
