BLACK (Isaiah Washington) CEMETERY, (Carey Road 10 miles NE of Athens), LIMESTONE COUNTY, ALABAMA

This aerial view shows the cemetery just past the grove of trees but before one arrives at the Rail Road Tracks or Slate Road. It is pointed out with the yellow arrow.

This aerial view zooms in and shows the road and Pecan Tree next to the road and the small thicket further out where the graves are located inside a fence.
Go Hayes Mill Road off of Hwy 127 and turn right on Carey Road going east. Follow that road until it turns 90 degrees south and then back 90 degrees east (the second turn). Then go 1/2 way to Slate Road or about 1/4 mile and look left (or north) at a small thicket in the middle of a cornfield 150 feet out from the road. If you approach it from the west the cemetery will be out from a large Pecan Tree next to the road. The cemetery is inside a chain link fence. You will not be able to visit this cemetery until the Corn harvest is in, otherwise you will be trampling on the farmer's corn crop.

This cemetery is located on the north side of Carey Road. It sits 150' from Carey Road encircled by a chain-link fence.
