In Gurdon take E Main Street and follow it turning right onto Red Springs Road. Continue southeast for about 3 miles. Just before Dodgen Road you will see the cemetery on the top of a hill to the left.

This cemetery is called Rawles Hill Cemetery on some maps. I am not sure if that was it's name at one time, or just a name some gave it named after the area.

I don't know who owns the cemetery, but the Dodgens are the caretakers. It is still used and in very good condition.

I visited and read this cemetery on Oct 18, 2006 using a digital camera. This includes all existing and legible stones and markers.
