Bennett Cemetery at Forks of the Salmon is not hard to find once you manage to find the 'Forks.'  From the Yreka south exit off Interstate 5, take Highway 3 to Etna.  Turn right on Main Street and keep going.  Pass through Sawyer's Bar and continue another 34 miles to Forks.  The road is winding and runs through some beautiful country.  When you reach the bridge at Forks, continue on about a half mile.  The road will curve right and the cemetery will be on your right...you can't miss it.  The cemetery is long and not very wide.  There are a few plots and a few single markers.
