A Dillahunty descendant who visited the graves in 1925 described the location as about 300 yards west of the Belle Meade Country Club golf course's clubhouse. At that time, the land was owned by Colonel Luke Lea of Nashville.

In the Tennessee State Archives family files, there is a circa 1925 photograph of John Dillahunty's tombstone at its original Richland Creek site. The photograph also includes one of his descendants, Elizabeth Neely, the then chair of the Committee for Preservation of Historic Spots, Old Glory Chapter (Franklin, TN), D.A.R.

A 1931 Colonial Dames publication shows the two Dillahunty tombstones as being in a small cemetery located "in a field southwest of the Belle Meade Golf and Country Club".

Destroyed many years ago. Nothing but private homes and a country club golf course here now. It is referred to locally and has been listed by the historical cemeteries group as the "Bryan-Dillahunty Cemetery."
