From Manchester, go north on Hwy 11 and turn left onto Collins Fork Road.  Go about one mile and at the top of the hill there is a graveled drive on the left.  Go farther and turn around in order to go down the drive.  At the bottom of the drive take the second lane to the right and go up the steep hill to the cemetery.  The earlier survey, published in Vol II, Clay County Kentucky Cemetery Records, lists five individuals not found in this survey.   They are marked with the # sign.  A correction to the earlier survey is underlined.
