|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Phillips Cemetery is located 1 1/2 miles West of Huntsville. To find this cemetery: Take Highway 74 West from Huntsville for about 1 1/2 miles. The address is 12924 Highway 74. The cemetery sits in the middle of a field on the right side of the Highway, just a short distance from Highway 74. To reach the cemetery you will turn right down a private driveway, and you should call the landowners since there are locks on the gates leading to the cemetery. You will need a 4-wheel drive vehicle to reach the cemetery but it is just a short walk from the driveway. The cemetery is located in a large group of trees and is visible from Highway 74.
This cemetery was cleaned up in 2008 and a new fence was constructed around the cemetery. Bushes and sapplings were cut down, but they have now begun to sprout from the stumps again. At the present time this cemetery is very overgrown and most of the tombstones have been knocked down (and many are broken) by cattle which have roamed in the cemetery in the past before the fence was repaired.
