    Immediately past this house is a paved driveway which you turn onto
    and go straight up to the top of the hill to the last house and park.
  6. Slightly to the left and behind this house is a barb wire fence.
    If you are facing up the hill you will walk on the left side
    of this barb wire fence and follow it to the top of the hill.
    You will come to another barbed wire fence.
    Cross over the barb wire fence at top of the hill
    and cemetery is immediately to the right.

NOTE: You have to go across private property to get to the cemetery,
and should stop to get permission from the home owner.

If you attempt to visit this cemetery be aware there are lots of briar patches,
so dress accordingly and take work gloves and weed clippers.
