Going from Fallsville, (Newton County) west on Highway 16 to Red Star (Madison County) turn right on Madison County Road 3605. At 1 mile (you will cross over a low water bridge and also a cattle guard) then to a "Y" in the road. There you will see a sign with three cemeteries on it pointing to the right. Don't take the right. Go on the left of the "Y" (you are now on Madison County Road 3500) you will drive 2.9 miles and the cemetery will be on your left out in a field.
The road is pretty okay to drive on using a car or a low chasied vehicle, as long as you go slow and pay attention to where you're driving. We went in a pickup just because wasn't sure of the terrain.
We are trying to collect as many obits of these people as possible. So if anyone would like to contact us about or to share an obit we would appreciate it. We also have headstone pictures for everyone that has a headstone, and we can scan them for anyone who would like to see them. We feel like if we all share with one another then these people's memories will always be.
Rosa Cline and I transcribed this cemetery in Jul of 2002.- Robert Cline
