The cemetery is in remarkably good shape to be as old as it is and to have been neglected. It is on private land.
From Paris, take Hwy. 54 to the community of Como. Go south on Hwy. 140 to New Bethel Road (It does not have a road sign, but you will pass the Union Church, and the road will be just past the radio microwave tower). Turn left on New Bethel Road and go eight-tenths of a mile (two-tenths mile past Dale Road). To your right will be a drive that goes about 175 yards to a "yellowish" hunting cabin with a gambrel roof. The cabin can be seen from the road. There is a metal farm gate across the drive, and the out-of-state owner has posted "No Trespassing" signs on both sides. The cemetery is about 400 yards from the road and in the woods. To find the cemetery, go up the drive about half way to the cabin and then take a farm lane to the left, through the woods. This lane actually circles around the cabin. Before you get directly behind the cabin, at a bend in the lane, leave the lane and go up the rise through the woods. The cemetery is about 75 yards off the lane under a few cedar trees. (About 250 yards behind the cabin and to the left). About half way between the lane and the cemetery is an old wire fence that you will need to step over.
