VAUGHAN CEMETERY, SOWELL MILL RD., DUCK RIVER, MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE
Go east on Sowell Mill Pike to point where Duck River makes its turn east. Enter the old road bed that crosses the concrete bridge and meanders along river bluff. Go about 1/4 mile. The cemetery is in a grove of large trees which spans into the field from the river on right of trail. There is a locked cable across the road, prohibiting the entrance of vehicles. Have a nice walk.
