This cemetery is located on Blue Ridge Road, on the river hill, off Orchard Road, about three miles east of Hibernia. Coming from Hibernia, it is on the left side, about 1/4 mile off the road. There is no drive or road to it. According to the Owen Township Trustee, there is presently no access to the property, without the permission of the property owner.
