This cemetery is on private property. Obtain permission from property owner before visiting this cemetery.
Directions:
Go east of Cloverdale on Co Rd 1000S about four miles. The road will turn right, then back left and Ts into 775E. At that point, go north on 775E to 975S. Go east (right) on 975S about mile. On the north side of the road, just as the road starts up a hill and an S curve, there is a small patch of woods. Go into these woods at the southwest corner along the road and follow the trail up the hill about 100 yards to the cemetery. There is a wooden sign just outside the cemetery, which is in a small clearing in the woods, but there is no sign along the road. The cemetery can also be located by going south of Belle Union on 825E. After about four miles, the road turns to the right (west). Go west about mile to where the roads goes down a small hill and through some S curves. The cemetery is on the north side of the road in a patch of woods.
Condition: Poor
The cemetery appears to have been maintained until fairly recently. There are a lot of young growth trees that need to be cut out. There is a sign marking the cemetery. The sign is right outside the cemetery, but there is no sign near the road to help find the path leading up to the cemetery. We cut the sapling trees and mowed this cemetery 2003. A few tombstones were reset at that time, but there are more that need to be reset.
The number at the left of each name corresponds with the map of the cemetery.
