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
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.
