      Directions: From intersection of US Hwy 52 Business (S. Main St) and NC Hwy 89 East (Westfield Rd), go east on NC Hwy 89 to Brenda Drive on the left. Turn left on Brenda Drive and go to McGee St. Turn left on McGee St, then right on Town Lane and go to last house on the right. Get permission to park in driveway (Marshall name on the mailbox).

Stay close to fence/pasture on the left and go to end of fence, then climb up hill into the back of the cemetery.
