Dunn Cemetery

This old cemetery is located in the SE1/4 SW1/4 of Section 8, Township 14 South, Range 22 West. It is somewhat difficult to locate if you are not familiar with the area. The cemetery is fenced. I did a second survey of this cemetery Oct. 6, 2006 and it does not appear that any maintenance has been done in some time. A complete record of this cemetery made in 1997.
Driving directions: The old road leading to the cemetery from Hwy. 53 has been closed. Another way is to go to the intersection of Hwy. 53 and Hwy. 32 (Brockman Hill), which is about two miles south of Bodcaw. Turn left on Hwy. 32 toward Willisville and go 9/10th of a mile. Turn left at Corinth Baptist church on Rd. No. 15 and go north 8/10th of a mile to a sharp curve. Go left 3/10ths of a mile. Turn left on to a dim oil field road and go 3/10ths of a mile to a crossroads. Go right and go 2/10ths of a mile on a very dim road to the cemetery, which will be on your left. You probably need a pick-up truck.
THE LAST COMPLETE SURVEY OF THIS CEMETERY WAS MADE OCTOBER 6, 2006
