In Faulkner, from the intersection of Highway 301 and Faulkner Road, go onto Faulkner Road and go .75 miles south, past the railroad tracks until you reach the Faulkner Ash Ste which is on the east side of the road. Turn into the Faukner Ash Site and go east for.3 miles, then north for .1 mile, then east again for .1 mile until you hit a dirt-gravel road. The grave site is on the the northeast corner of the intersection of the paved road and the dirt-gravel road.
This is a little cemetery that only has two graves. Go to the Visitor Center first to sign in. The old headstone was replaced by a new one and the Daughters of the American Revolution put a marker honoring Gerard Wood. The cemetery sits on the Faulkner Ash site and it is well taken care of. I think the owner is not planning to rebuild the house which was over 200 years old.
I visited and read this cemetery on Nov 03, 2007.
