Proceed out of Scottown NE on Rte 217 for about 1.5 miles. At a sharp right turn with the stately ‘old John Fulks farmhouse’ on the left and a grain silo immediately across the road on the right, turn left off Rte 217 and proceed NW up a rough, steep township road labeled, T-81, on the Lawrence Co. map. T-81 commences immediately to north of the Fulks farmhouse. Once on T-81, take all junctions to the left, through couple of fenced pastures to the end of the road and the cemetery. The distance is approximately 1 to 1.5 miles from Rte 217. On a Lawrence County map, the site is located near the middle of the boundary of Windsor Twp Sections 12 and 13. [Thanks to Henry S.
