Mangus Cemetery

The Mangus cemetery is fenced in and on a slight incline. Starting at the top right corner in the back row. That way the reading goes left to right in the row, then right to left next row, then back to left to right, alternating like a zigzag pattern, so you end up at the bottom of the hill, ready to exit.

Directions to Cem: Go up from Goff Church, 1 1/2 miles to fork, take Left fork until the road ends at the cemetery on right. The turn around is at the cemetery. A metal pole blocks the road so you can not drive to back part of dam any longer. ( too many kids partying there). Cemetery was read May 1998 and to my knowledge no one new has been laid to rest there since that date.
