To get to Old Union Cemetery, be sure to follow the directions closely, as once you are off the main highway you will be in the timbers. In Athens, from Hwy 246 & Hwy 84, go west on Hwy 246 for 7.9 mile. Turn south (left). Stay on the white chat road - at the cross sections take the center road - at the Y's take the right Y. You will go 2.2 mile. As a marker, when you cross the cattle guard you will continue 1 mile and the cemetery sets on the right.

As you enter the cemetery beginning on the east (right) side, you find:
