Follow this dirt road along to CR 312, which is well marked with a street sign. CR 312 runs straight into a gate at a T-intersection and continues on to the right. To find the cemetery stop at the T-intersection and stand at the long one-piece gate looking into the pasture. The tallest post oak tree along a fence line to the right about 250 yards from the road is the location of the cemetery. Then turn right and go to the next gate, which is a two-piece gate that opens in the middle. Looking into this pasture from the gate one can see the fence line dividing the two pieces of land to the left. A good road goes into this pasture and leads to the deer lease camp but beyond that a 4-wheel drive vehicle is required to get to the cemetery.
