Turn right on 5002 and drive 1.5 miles to MC 5003. Turn right on 5003 and drive 1.1 miles veering to the left of the farm yard till you reach the end of the road which is an abandoned house and barn. The fence to the left has a gate and about ¼ of the mile distance to a small grove of trees and built brush area. This is the Phillips Family Cemetery.
