Take Highway 26 west at the only red light in Benndale and go west about 2 miles. Turn right or north onto Fairley-O'Neal Road. Near the road sign there will be a sign saying 'Dirt Pit'. Continue north on Fairley-O'Neal Road for about 1.5 mile, then turn right onto Dirt Pit Road (unnamed) where you will see another the 'Dirt Pit' sign. Go approximately 350 yards and the cemetery will be located on your left.
The cemetery is surrounded by a chain link fence and is in good shape. The cemetery is a private cemetery and upkeep and maintenance is done by family members of ones buried here.
I walked this cemetery on Dec 08, 2007, and the information was gathered using all existing and legible headstone inscriptions and temporary grave markers.
