Turn left (east) on to 1010 Rd. and go about 2 miles to the traffic light at the intersection of 1010 Rd. and Old Stage Rd., (SR 1006). A sign designates this as Williams Crossroads. Turn left (north) onto Old Stage Rd., and about 1 mile up the road, on your right, (east side) you will see 2 small cemeteries side by side. No parking available, just pull off onto the shoulder.
This is the companion cemetery to Williams Cemetery. The cemetery was hidden by overgrowth and brambles but is now cleared since there are new subdivisions adjacent. Some stones are broken and laying flat.
