Rocky Mound Cemetery

This cemetery is located on the section line between sections 25 and 26 in Township 13 South, Range 21 West. The road is graded to the cemetery, but continues on as a woods road or trail. The cemetery is fenced and is still occasionally used for burials. The first thing I noticed about this cemetery when I visited it was the total lack of grass in the cemetery. The ground is covered with a shale type, rocky soil. I suppose this is how it came to be known as Rocky Mound. It is sometimes called Dixon Cemetery
Driving directions: From the intersection of Hwy. 371 and Hwy. 278 in Rosston, go east on Hwy. 278 toward Camden almost three miles and turn left on a dim road that appears to be a logging road (Rd. No. 433). Go north 1/2 mile to the cemetery which is in a clearing on top of a hill.
