Meek Cemetery:

Take state road 40E to the Bee Branch turnoff at Boons camp. About 200' West of the Bee Branch turnoff is a lane called Paradise Lane. Take this lane until it ends at the home

of Les Meek. From there you take a very narrow and treacherous road winding around the

hill to reach the cemetery. Most people would not be able to navigate this road. Permission must be obtained from Mr. Meek since access to the cemetery is on private

property.

There are approximately 7-8 graves that only have a rock. One of those rocks will be for Glen Meek, Lydia Meek, & Donald Meek, Aaron Meeks, Susan Butcher Meeks.
