CEMETERY, GILES COUNTY - MAURY/GILES COUNTY TENNESSEE LINE
It was later determined when I visited this cemetery that this map was marked 1/4 mile to the north. The Howell Cemetery is actually in Giles County at spot on this map called CEM on Topographical maps and others have is named Elkridge Cemetery. Nevertheless it is actually found at GPS 35.4485N X -87.1316W.
On this map the cemetery is called the Elk Ridge Cemetery. It is actually the Howell Cemetery. Also there is an African American American Cemetery just south of here and on the other side of the road called the Flannigan Cemetery. It is unmapped and also further east one can see the old New Hope Cemetery also an African American cemetery.
This Aerial view shows the cemetery in a clump of trees on the west side of Morrow Branch Road marked here with a red check.
