Directions taken from Cemeteries & Family Graveyards in Haywood County, N.C. ~ June 1, 1979 ~ written by George Augustus Miller, Sr. The rough dirt roads may be paved by now.
The Rathbone Family Cemetery is located in the Fines Creek area situated in the Rathbone Cove below Harmon Den Wildlife Management area on the right of Toms Branch below Hurricane Mountain.
To reach this small family graveyard, take the Hurricane Creek Exit off Interstate 40 W and circle under the Interstate overpass and follow the Park Service Road for approximately two miles, until you reach Rathbone Cove on your right. Take this rough dirt road and drive for one mile where the road becomes impassable and narrows into a small lane. Park here and walk down this narrow path for about 1/2 of a mile where the cemetery will be visible on your left across Town Branch on a small tree covered knoll.
