COX CEMETERY, (Junction of Charity Rd. & Shields Hollow Rd.), MOORE COUNTY TENNESSEE
From the above map we are given the GPS location of the Cox Cemetery.
Location: From Shelbyville go south on Hwy 231 up the hill onto the Chestnut Ridge & pass into Moore County. After another couple of miles along the ridge turn left on Charity Road and go down the hill into the Valley of the headwaters of the West Fork of Mulberry Creek. From 231 travel Charity Road for more than 2 miles and look for the Shields Hollow Road on the right. Turn into Shields Hollow Road and Stop and with permission to cross the farmer's land go east 200 yards to the cemetery behind a rock wall under several trees. I do not believe there is an entrance into the cemetery so be prepared to climb a low rock wall about 2 feet and descend to the other side.
This Aerial Map shows the cemetery more clearly located. There is no parking on the narrow Shields Road so that will be an issue for you because the pavement is high above the land and will cause you to you drive further up the road to find a parking spot which will not block the narrow road.
