In Dentsville, from the intersection of Highway 6 and Wheatley Road, go north/ northeast on Wheatley Road for .2 miles until you get to Manor Court. Turn onto Manor Court and go southeast for .2 miles until you reach the address of 12245 Manor Road. Park there and go south along a path through the woods for about 80 yards. The cemetery is right there at the end of the path.
A small neglected family cemetery that it is in the woods All but one of the headstones have fallen over. There are about 10 indentations in the ground meaning unmarked graves amd 2 fieldstones. The cemetery contains the families of Cooksey and Dent, which were prominents familes in the area at one time.
I visited and read this cemetery on Oct 21, 2007.
