Directions: From Highway 298 (Kirk Road), turn onto Thomas Loop Road. From Thomas Loop Road, turn north onto an unmarked, unpaved road west of Belle Lane. The unmarked road dead-ends at the cemetery.

The cemetery overlooks the north fork of the Saline River. The area was selected by William Leatherwood, who lived in the area and owned the property on which the cemetery is located. According to family lore, he chose the site and took his wife, Sarah, up the small mountain overlooking the river and his farm. He told her this was the spot he had selected for his burial. His wife told him she did not think she would be able to find the spot later, but he assured her that he had blazed a trail and that she would have no difficulty when the time came to bury him. He also told her that he had selected the spot, not only for its beauty, but so he could watch over the children as they worked the farm.
