This cemetery may be reached from Lake Longmire Road.  This road runs between Pauls Valley and Highway 177.  From Highway 177 turn west onto this road.  About 2 miles down you will come to an S curve and the Sandy Creek Bridge. Turn north just before the bridge.  The church and cemetery are up this road about 1/4 mile, on the west side of the road.  The cemetery is in back and to the south of the church in the brush next to the creek.  Part of it looks as if it could have been mowed earlier this year, or maybe last year, but the majority of it is overgrown.  There could be stones/burials back in the brush which weren't readily accessible.  If you find errors in this listing or know others who are resting here, please let us know.  Send email to the Assistant State Coordinator

which is behind the church next to
Sandy Creek

This is the only Inscribed Tombstone which is
currently accessible.  It may well be the only
inscribed stone, but there may be others in
the brush closer to the creek
