Directions: From Grayson Parkway (US 58) about 3 miles east of Independence go south on Pleasant Grove Road (Route 698) at the western junction with Pleasant Grove Road with From Grayson Parkway. About 0.4 mile later, just past the Pleasant Grove Church and cemetery continue straight on Church Hill Road another 0.9 mile to Beaver Dam Road (Route 697). Turn left (SE) on Beaver Dam Road and go about 1 mile to the junction with Old River Road (Route 700). From this junction go east (left) about 2/3 mile on Old River to the end of state maintenance and the entrance gate to the Vannoy Farms on the right. Cemetery is on a high bank on the south side of Old River Lane and is accessed by entering Vannoy Farms and climbing the hill to the immediate right of the entrance. Cemetery is not visible from Old River Lane or the driveway into Vannoy Farms.

Surveyed by: Mr. & Mrs. Vance Bond & family, Dr. & Mrs. J. L. Givens & family Apr. 11, 1971 as part of the D.A.R. cemetery project.

Interments: 19 (based on 1971 survey). See Pleasant Grove Baptist Church Cemetery for the memorials for Martin Gentry Alexander and Mary Catherine Gentry Alexander.

Comments: There are at least two field stones outside of the cemetery fence. In 2008 this cemetery was fenced and in the edge of the trees. The markers were in good condition but some were worn and difficult to read.
