From Jacksonville, travel north on Highway 21/Pelham Road. Turn left (west) on Nisbet Street NW/Highway 204, then turn right (north) on Nisbet Lake Road/County Road 37. At the intersection of Carpenters Lane and Boozer Lake Road/County Road 77, turn left (west) on Boozer Lake Road/County Road 77 and travel about ¾ of a mile. You will see a sign to the right that says Roy Parris Road (runs north). The cemetery road is left (south) of Roy Parris Road. The cemetery road is a white gravel rock "tire track only" road that goes up a hill with woods on both sides. As you top the hill, it opens up and the cemetery is on the right. The old graves are on the left side of the cemetery with newer graves near the entrance. There are a lot of unreadable and broken stones in the old section, and no graves in the middle of the land.
