Located approximately 4 miles SE of the Town of Leighton, AL, in the SE of Section 27, Township 4S, Range 9W. This is the area NW of the intersection of Lile Lane and Cotton Town Road. The cemetery is located in a grove of trees on a hill. There are many markers unidentifiable due to the ravages of weather and time. It appears there could be more than a hundred graves in the area. Those markers identifiable are listed below with the inscriptions verbatim, unless in parenthesis.
