This cemetery is located on the O’Neal Griffin Road, a dirt road at White Oak Station. To access this cemetery, take Co. Rd 79 North off SR 30, (Clayton Hwy.). When you cross the RR tracks at the Louisiana Pacific entrance, you go seven tenths of a mile to the 2nd entrance to O’Neal Griffin Rd. Turn right onto this dirt road. Approximately two tenths of a mile down this road, you will approach the beginning of a ridge on the right side of the road. Park here and walk down the ridge parallel to the road for about twenty yards. As soon as you cross an old fence row in this wooded area, you should see the grave markers.

There are at least three unmarked graves at this site including probably Green Beauchamp, who died 1883. The Spring 1971 issue of the Alabama Historical Quarterly indicated that former Director of the Alabama Dept. of Archives and History, Dr. Peter A. Brannon, searched in vain for years for the burial site of Barbour County pioneer, Green Beauchamp, who was said to have been buried in a family cemetery near White Oak Station. The article went on to say that Mrs. Marie Godfrey located the grave of Green Beauchamp in 1968 and that the tombstone stated simply, "Green Beauchamp/died 1883." Green Beauchamp was included in the survey when compiled by Mrs. Godfrey during the 1960s. Regardless of these revelations, Green Beauchamp’s grave is presently not identified in this small family cemetery.
