This is a very obscure and hidden cemetery, blink and you'll miss it. It's on Tates Creek Road in Madison County, far out into the country, almost all the way to Valley View.
The cemetery will be on your left. Watch for the view seen in the photo here, which was taken standing by the roadside looking down into the graveyard. You can barely see two stones peeking up from the high weeds and dense foliage that have overtaken the area. It's been awhile since I last checked this one out, but last time I was there I saw no indication that any of the graves had been visited recently. Some of the graves were discovered by accident while clearing a path to others, they were so hidden and grown-over with weeds and mud. This graveyard is badly in need of upkeep and preservation.
