Forest Hill/Briant Cemetery (Black)

This cemetery is located near the southwest corner of the SW1/4 SE1/4 of Section 2, Township 13 South, Range 23 West. It is directly behind the Forest Hill Baptist church. The church was formerly called Fairview, but the name was changed many years ago. There is a black section in the back of the cemetery that has not been maintained. There is no fence dividing the two sections at this time. The black section was badly grown up when I visited it in September, 2018.
Driving directions: From the Nevada-Hempstead county line on Hwy. 278 (formerly Hwy. 4), go east toward Rosston 1.9 miles. Turn left on Rd. No. 43 and go 4/10ths of a mile. Turn left on Rd. No. 271 and go west 2/10ths of a mile to the church and cemetery. This is a dead-end road.
