The center of the map marks the location of the Mt. Moriah Cemetery. This cemetery is detailed on the USGS records. I believe the GPS coordinates are correct as shown above.

To get to this cemetery from Fayetteville, go out Hwy 64 east toward Winchester. and turn north or left on Lynchburg Highway (Hwy 50). follow that highway for 4 or so miles and turn again near the Mulberry Cemetery north on Cedar Circle (which tracks parallel with High 50) and then turn back north again on Duck Branch Road (a gravel road) and go about a mile and 1/2 to the top of the hill and the cemetery is under the trees on your left just before you come out in the clearing. You will notice first the tall monument of the three Confederate States Army soldiers who died in the Battle of Franklin during 1864.

This Aerial view shows the cemetery marked with a red check with a small clearing on your left.
