|Condition of cemetery**:||Good (November 2001)|
cemetery is located on a bend in the Hughes River off Route 47, east of
Freeport. A road numbered 47/5 Wirt Co. leads down to the river.
The actual cemetery is on private land owned by the above stated man.
The cemetery is on the south side of the Hughes River and is
accessible by boat or in dry seasons by four-wheel drive. The Hughes
River Wildlife Management Area borders it on the south and east. There
is land access from somewhere through the Wildlife area because Mr.
Yeager stated that someone keeps the cemetery property mowed and it
isnít always done by him. He doesnít know who does it but they
donít get a gate key from him so they have to be accessing it from
the wildlife area side of the river.
