From the square, head east on Lafayette Parkway 3.5 mi. Just before the turn off to I 85 South, there is a drive way to the left (north). (It will be necessary to drive further east on Lafayette Parkway to turn around and come back west to actually reach this drive way.) Drive 1000 north on the drive way to the house, and park. Ask permission of the owner. Walk to the right from the house along a power line right away about 500 feet. The cemetery is south of the power line
Can only be reached by going through private property. The cemetery is surrounded with a barbed wire fence 60' x 65'.
