This cemetery is on private property at the address above. It has access but very limited parking along side of the private driveway.

From Athens, take either Hwy 29N or 106E to Madison County. From Hwy 29, turn left at the traffic light at Dogsboro (Ingles grocery will be on right) onto Fortson Store Rd. The next (only) traffic light will be at Hwy 106. Continue straight across onto Sanford Rd. If coming up Hwy 106E, turn left here. If coming from Hwy 29S turn right onto Fortson Store Rd., or coming up 106W, turn right onto Sanford.

Once on Sanford Rd., you will go 3 miles to the 5-way intersection with Nowhere Road (to your left) and Seagraves Mill Road (ahead). Cross the intersection onto Seagraves Mill Rd. You will travel 1.6 miles passing the old mill and Lake Seagraves on your right. Once past the lake, watch for a cluster of mail boxes on your right. You should be able to get a glimpse of the cemetery off to your right just before you get to the mailboxes. Turn into the drive at the mailboxes. Number 1881 will be on the side of the box closest to the driveway.
