aka Ashford Cemetery
This map shows the GPS Coordinates of the Tate Cemetery GPS is also known as the Latitude and Longitude.
From I 65 take the Old Hwy 20 exit toward Madison Alabama and go to the traffic light and turn south on County Line Road and to go to Swanscott Road and follow that a until it bears back north and then back westward. Go to where Billow Road junctions with Swanscott Road and turn south (left) on a dirt road and follow that about 300 yards and park and walk southwest for about 350 yards to the lone clump of trees in the plowed field where you will find this small abandoned cemetery. You will not be able to go here in the growing season without trampling on the farmers crops so the best time is December unless they plant wheat then go in October after the cotton or bean harvest but before the wheat is planted.
This aerial view above shows the cemetery located in the small clump of trees. The old home stood in the larger clump of trees I think, but according to the book Limestone County Cemeteries the cemetery was east of the house.
