Cemetery set on hill above Middlefork River, at the mouth of Cutshin Creek. It is accessed now by turning off lower McIntosh road
onto “Red” Will Napier Road.
The front part of this cemetery is newer (Napier – Sizemore). In the rear is an older Begley Cemetery. I combined the two together as they are now.
