(Hodgenville map, Section 17-M-47 Carter coordinates, about 1000 feet west of the east line) The cemetery is located on the northeast side of highway 210, about one half mile off the road. It is in the Jerico section of Larue County. This farm was once the property of Martin H. Dye, who married Mary Timberlake. Martin and Mary are believed buried there with fieldstones, as was their son, Joseph M. Dye. An obituary for Joseph M. Dye states, "Mr. Joe M. Dye of Jericho, reported to be the oldest man in Larue County, has passed away at the age of 95 years and 29 days. Mr. Dye's father came from Tennessee and his mother from Virginia. He was born in Hart County, but spent most of his life in Larue." (Not shown on topographic maps) The cemetery is on the east side of McDougal Creek, at the end of a gravel road.
