At the end of this road there is a metal gate that leads into a pasture. Stop here and walk across this pasture in a northwesterly direction for 760 yards to the cemetery. It is on a little hill, in a clump of mostly oak and cedar trees, in the middle of the pasture. It is about 150 yards past a pair of transmission lines, that you will go under getting to the cemetery. All the grave markers in this cemetery are standing against two or three trees. There are not any that are by a grave. There are about 10 sunken holes here. This cemetery is shown on the 1987 Lauderdale County Highway map. The legal description for this cemetery is SW4, NW4, Sec 9, T2S, R12W.
