It is situated in the wooded area at the end of West Howell Road off Talley Road. It has a chain link fence around it and is locked. It is only accessible from Blanchard Rd. just past the third house on the left. It was once part of a twenty acre tract of land acquired by Berry Talley from F. M. Gardenhire on Feb. 1, 1878. The deed drawn up for Berry and Margaret Talley on March 18, 1907. The cemetery was deeded to his children, grandchildren, and their heirs for use as a graveyard. It was surveyed and measurements drawn up for a map by B.E. Hicks on June 29, 1964. Since that date there have been five people buried that are not on the plot map.
