At Hendersonville, 3 3/i0 mi. south on Sanders Ferry Road; then 4/10 mi. southeast on Boat Dock Road. Cemetery is on east side of road beside lake. According to Mr. Walter Durham, this was the site of the old Drake's Creek Meetinghouse. We found only two stones.

In the 1930s Mrs. Alice Guthrie said that the cemetery was then on the property of Mrs. Haratio Berry. She found the following:

Mrs. Guthrie also listed the stone of Mary Sanders which we found has been moved to the Daniel Smith Cemetery - No. 5-1.
