Mapping the Location of the cemetery

Porter Cemetery, Hoover Mason Rd. Mt. Pleasant Tn. the City of Mt Pleasant now owns the land now and is putting a sewer system there near the Cemetery. Mr Fred Hawkins said this about the location in 1987. On a rise west of road that follows Scott Creek. I think this is called Haul Roads on some maps and goes northwest from Porters to connect to Hoover Mason Road north of there a mile or two. This graveyard is located atop of a small knoll left there when the area all around it was mined for phosphate.
