At one time the approach to this large cemetery was from Old Stage Road. The least complicated approach, now:turn at U.S. Highway 70 onto Ledsinger Road and drive about 2 miles to Old Stage Road, onto which one turns and drives about .2 mile to McLemoresville Road, onto which one turns and drives about .9 mile to the driveway of Mr. John Thomsen, on the west side of the road. From this point one walks due south, through a wide field, crosses a drain, ascends a wooded ridge about .5 mile to this cemetery.
