1 mile south of Staples on the east side of 621.

From the intersection of FM 621 and FM 1977 in Staples, head south on FM 621 for 0.9 miles. The cemetery is along the roadside, on the east side of the highway (your left, coming from Staples). It is unmarked, but is enclosed by a chain link fence in poor repair. The cemetery itself is overgrown; no markers are visible from the road or the entry gate. -
