OLD CATHEY CEMETERY, BOOKER FARM RD, (Western) MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE

Go out Hwy 412/Hampshire Pike past Cross Bridges and turn right (or north) on Booker Farm Road. Go 2 1/2 miles. After the third sharp (left) bend in the road go another 1/2 mile and the road will bend right. Go another 1/2 mile and the road will bend left again. Right there on your right should be a farm road crossing the creek. Take that if feasible and follow it 500 yards until you are across the creek and inside the tree line going up the hill. Get out there and walk south along the same elevation and the cemetery should be no more than about 50 yards from your vehicle or the farm road. The yellow highlighted marking points out the farm road. We do not know if the route is lined with pad locked gates or if permission is required. Locator Maps
