At Milton take US Route 60 East to Kilgore Creek Road, which is the next left after you pass the Milton Flee Market. Milton City Hall will be on the right across the intersection of Kilgore Creek. Turn left onto Kilgore Creek, you will go under I64, and go about 0.7 miles.  At the top of the hill, park on side of the road and walk to the highest point of the hill on the ride side.  The cemetery is overgrown and in poor condition.  Many of the markers have been knocked over and are lying on the ground.
