SEARS CEMETERY
This cemetery is located 8 miles north of Elkton, KY. Past the North Todd County Elementary School.  Tucker Lane (road sign is missing) is on your right as you proceed north on Highway 181 .5 mile beyond Highway 507. Turn right off Highway 181 at sign that says "Laster Feed Service"on road leading back to sawmill then left at crossroad. Approximately 1/4 mile after leaving 181 you will see "Sears Cemetery"sign on your right.

A barbed wire fence lines the right side of the road separating access from the road to the
cemetery.  About 30 feet from the road is the cemetery in an otherwise open pasture.
It is said to be the original W.M. Sears farm.
