I don't remember even seeing the church. We parked on the shoulder of the road, walked through some bushes and the creek was there. We crossed the bridge and then came up into the cemetery, kind of the back way. I can't remember how far the cemetery was from the bridge. I do remember asking how they buried people there if there was only a rope bridge. That's when they said you could drive all around to the other side and there was an entrance that cars could go in, but this was much shorter than driving all the way around.
That is all I can remember, but I can see it as clear as a bell. It seems like the part of the cemetery we came into was mostly surrounded by woods and we only stayed in the part where all of the Dillards were. I can also remember going home and being covered with tics.
