The GPS location of Massie Mill is assumably on the North River, wheras the cemetery was in a higher elevation south of the river. It appears that 1875 and 1913 atlases show the road going north out of Palmyra as crossing North River north and east of the old closed off road thru the two Cemeteries Old Palmyra and Greenwood Cemetery. The Google Map at the Massie Cemetery page indicates the old RR location along the river. The road intersection may have lead to the destruction of the Massie graveyard. The Google Map zoom view looks like some kind of shoal or crossing structure such as a ford east of the bend in the river. This probably linked up with the old road from the north.
Before 1962 some changes were made on Hwy 61 -- "The Palmyra Hill" This may alter some of the directions given in the attachments
