Directions: Follow Rte. 97 past Petersburg and through Atterberry. About one mile past Atterberry, turn left on to Whites Crossing Road, where you will immediately cross a railroad track. After crossing the track, go immediately to the left on to Magee Road. From Rte. 97 to the cemetery the distance is 0.2 miles. The cemetery is on the right side of the road in the middle of a field and at the top of a small hill. It is only a small brush patch. There are no trees or fence. We found two stones lying down with names on them and several footsstones with initials. We also found a large field stone with no name and the base of another stone. There were several sunken holes around the cemetery.

The original transcription for this cemetery was done by James Toal in 1982. The new reading and photos were done on Jan. 21, 2002.
