ATKINSON-HARLOW CEMETERY, (Spence Cave Rd, AL/TN State line), LIMESTONE COUNTY, ALABAMA
This map shows the GPS Coordinates of the Atkinson-Harlow Cemetery. GPS is also known as the Latitude and Longitude location.
From Athens go out N. Jefferson St and veer right onto Hays Mill Road. Follow that across Thatch Road where it becomes Pettusville Road and follow that and you find the left turn onto Spence Cave Road. Spence Cave Rd winds and twist around, but just before the State Line look to the left under a grove of trees. There is a road to the Payne Cemetery which is African-American and along that road to the right is the Harlow Cemetery which is a white cemetery and much smaller and older. Well it is fair to say at least the marked graves are much older in the Harlow Cemetery. Who knows about the age of the many unmarked graves in the Payne Cemetery.
This aerial view above shows the Harlow Cemetery north and adjacent to the Payne Cemetery pointed out with a red check.
