From Pauls Valley take Hwy 19 east about 10 miles, (3 miles past Peavine Creek bridge and Civit), about 4 miles west of Stratford..  You will come to a sign that says Paradise Ranch (on the north side of Hwy 19) and a fence which encloses a house, barn and some kind of implement business.  Turn north at the east end of this fence.   This place has a gate just about where you turn that says 'BG'.  Go straight north down this road, about 4 miles.  You will come to a cross roads.  There you will see an old faded hand written sign (on the west side of the road) which says, Dixon Chapel Church 2 miles north 1/3 mile west.  Go on down this road, and you will come to a tan gate which says 'N Posted - Keep Out'.  Behind the fence is a tan metal barn and on down is a brick home.  Just on down the road you will cross a little bridge and come to the end of this fence with another gate, silver, that says 'N Posted - Keep out' and just by it you can turn west (there is no road leading east).  Go about 1/3 mile west and at the top of the hill you will come to the church drive way on the north side.  The cemetery is on the east side of the drive and there are 3 large white cross's on the wast side of the drive.
