LANCASTER CEMETERY, (Blue
Springs Rd), MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE
Go east on old Lewisburg Pike (Hwy. 50) to Fountain Creek Bridge. Continue for about 1/4 mile and enter farm lane on left. From house, go north across top of ridge for one half mile. The cemetery is in the edge of the woods on the bluff overlooking Cedar Creek. It is very hard to find.
