                     .......from this common intersection(routes #20 & #52),
                                     in Bluewellfirst of two traffic lights,

                     .......in down-town Montcalm,
                                       turn left across the Bluestone River bridge,
                                                 toward McComas;
                     .......immediately at the end of the bridge,
                                  turn across the Crane Creek bridge
to the left,
                                      
following along the flat beside the Bluestone River
                                             across the rail-road
tracks to the right,
                                                  
up the hill,
                                                          past the Riverside Methodist Church building,
                                                                
on out the secondary road,
                                                                      
to a sharp left turn,
                                                                             having an abandoned house
on the right.

                     .......The condition of the cemetery can be rated as "poor":

activities,
                                                        of Mother Nature, 
                                                                     have been un-checked for many years.
