Salty Dawg - 2013:
On this Lord's day November 12, 2013, I was fortunate to visit the Hubbell graves on Miller Lake Road. The owner of the lake was very kind to allow me leeway to the graves and neighbors helped me locate them. At first I searched for them using Google maps online, but the location was wrong. Here are the exact GPS coordinates of the cemetery: 35.45845, -87.110372

There are only two graves:  George Washington Hubbell and Elizabeth Adaline Hubbell. I didn't have paper to copy the names... going by memory.

The graves were not hard to find, just off the bank of the lake in the woods. You can tell that the cemetery has been peacefully left alone. There's no sign of a fence or wall, and also no sign of visitors for many years. I was impressed to find the graves still standing with fairly readable inscriptions. Both graves have foot stones with their initials: G. W. H. and E. A. H.

The cemetery is in a beautiful location with the lake just 200-300 feet away.  I parked in the sharp bend on Miller Lake Road, then climbed beside the dam of the lake. The walk was only about 400 feet.

Next time I visit (very soon), I will take a camera and paper to copy / photograph the inscriptions.

On the Lord's day November 18, 2013, I made another visit to these graves. This time taking my camera to photograph the stones. Andrew Tomlin
