From the above map we see the Dance Cemetery which is marked as the Gore Cemetery on USGS mapping. GPS location as N 35.3018 X W 86.37239. This matches the original instructions I was given to get to this cemetery and also matches another persons knowledge I met since 1990. In the Moore Co Cem book there is no Gore Cemetery which is another indication this is the Dance Cemetery.

Location: From Highway 55 go north of Lynchburg bear left on Old Lynchburg Road. Take that for 1/4 mile and turn left on Cashion Rd and go to the 3rd house on the right with a longest driveway. However the houses are hard to see so after turning on Cashion Rd go over the East Fork of Mulberry creek and 2 tenths of a mile and turn right in the driveway up the slope to the house for permission. The place I have marked is just north of the house across the driveway but if that is wrong the thicket further north of there.

The old photos show it in a dense thicket but this cemetery appears to have been cleared looking from the Google close in image.
