The location of this cemetery has eluded us til now; Linda and Lamar Schweitzer were able to guide us to it. From LA 27, about 6 miles south of Singer, turn west on Old Seal Road, go 3.5 miles to Hugh Myers Road and turn right (north).
The cemetery is behind Mr. Myers's house at the end of the road. The driveway leading to the gate is lined with cedar trees on one side and crepe myrtlebushes on the other.

There are lots of shrubbery and trees---one ancient cedar. The cemetery proper is fenced with a cyclone fence, and is surrounded by woods. Very nice! Well taken care of, with lots of mowing necessary. There are lots of birds if you are a bird watcher. Linda Schweitzer told us the local shop teacher directed the job of making and placing markers on the graves which were unmarked several years ago. A great project which means a lot to the genealogist in search of loved ones. Thanks, guys!!
