PHELPS CEMETERY (Wales Community), GILES COUNTY, TENNESSEE
From the above map detail we see the Phelps Cemetery GPS location. This cemetery is not shown on some current map services. It was on the old topography maps maintained by USGS. GPS plotting by C. Wayne Austin.
Location: Take Highway 64 west from Pulaski and turn north after a mile on Hwy 166 (Campbellsville Road). Travel that for about 5 miles along the pristine Richland Creek valley farming community. Pass by the Wales Community. When the road starts to climb a large hill look to your right for a locked farm gate. The cemetery is about 1/4 miles due north behind that gate. Notice this map above shows the cemetery and farm road. Just before you reach the cemetery there will be a large farm pond on your left as seen in the map below. If you pass Wales Estate Road you have traveled too far. There is actually two gates with access into farm roads on the left in that area so don't go to the wrong one as the other one goes directly to a house. I am not aware if this is a private or public cemetery but the locked gates reminds me someone thinks it is private.
This Aerial Map shows the grove of tree where the cemetery resides just north of a farm pond & still adjacent to Campbellsville Pike east of the cemetery about 170 yards. Official location description: Hwy 64W, right into Campbellsville Road, go on pass Wales Community. Cemetery on left on big hill. Graves inside and outside chain link fence.
