Images of James Lovelace Cemetery
From the square, drive west/south west on Vernon Rd/West Point Rd 13.2 mi. The cemetery is 200 ft on the left (west) . The is a service road to cemetery entering West Point Rd (US 29) at N32 54.572, W85 9.417.
The service road was locked by a gate when I visited the cemetery, but it was an easy walk around the gate.

The cemetery is now surrounded with a locked, chain link fence, 110' x 110'. In 2009, the keys for the cemetery locks were obtained from Steven Johnson of West Point.

A survey of this cemetery was performed by Janie Lovelace Heard, and dated August 30, 1952. A copy of this survey was obtained from Steven Johnson. The survey contained a hand-drawn plat of the cemetery, which is included as the third image of the cemetery. The plat indexed each grave, and these indexes are referenced for each tombstone record.
