This old cemetery is located about 1 block from Sandhill Baptist
Church. To get there--If coming off of Hwy 32, turn onto a paved road
called (I think) Danny Kirkland Rd. Go North approx. 1 mile, and follow
the signs to Sandhill Baptist Church. You need to turn Right on Otter
Way just before you get to the church. Otter Way will go past the
cemetery--located on the right, behind and old iron fence.

There is also several unmarked cement slabs of infants and adults in this cemetery. According to Mrs. Grace Youngblood Cason (b. 14 Dec 1914) whose Grandfather Timothy Kirkland, Jr. donated the land for the Kirkland Cemetery. The first brick above ground grave is Ida Mae Youngblood Baker who died shortly after the birth of her last child. (This is the grave to your right coming into the cemetery where you park) The other grave is Willie Kirkland, Jr. who died from the Spanish Flu in 1918. Moses Kirkland's will states all the Lots that the brothers inherited.
