From Locust Fork take State Route 79 South to Center Spring Road and turn Right. Go to Philadelphia Road and turn Left. Go half way up the hill to the first road on the Left with a fence across it. You will have to walk to the cemetery which is about 1/2 mile out in the woods.
This cemetery is very small and most folks don't even know of it. Its location is hard to find and can't be seen from the main road. It has no name that anyone can think of, so for namesake, I am calling it the Huffstutler Cemetery because there are some Huffstutler's buried in it.
Local folks say that this is the original cemetery for the Philadelphia (Baptist) Church. The original church at the bottom of the hill burned down and then was rebuilt and then destroyed by a tornado before it was moved to the top of the hill at its present location.
I have digital pictures of the graves if anyone want one e-mail to them.
Survey was finish in Jan. 2002. 15 unmarked graves.- Barry Huffstutler
