More detailed directions for finding the cemetery:

It is located on Hwy 12 (aka Ashland City Highway).  The house number is 2312 and the house next to it is 2308. 

The mailboxes are side by side.  You can see the cemetery gate from the road if you are really looking for it.  Almost directly across from the cemetery is a sign that says "Ashland City" and has an American flag there.  The house there has two chimneys and is on a slight rise.  There is also a house on the right side but bear to the left and there it is.
