Subject: [jacksongenealogy] I still cannot find the Kirby Cemetery on Backbone Ridge
Help! My husband and I covered all the territory between the new
Captian D's on 79 and the golf course today looking for the Kirby
Cemetery--with no luck. I have previously driven up the road behind
Tate's Barbeque past the Sumner/Parks Cemetery to the place where
debris keeps me from going any further and could not locate it from
that direction. I understand the other Kirby researchers have tried
finding it by going up the stairs behind Westchester Apartments.
I know that in 1999, Jane Nichols reported that this cemetery was in
bad shape. I would like to photograph this cemetery in its current
state and try to enlist the City of Scottsboro's help in improving the
access to this cemetery and getting some of the trash and construction
debris that either covers it or impedes access to it.
I will be in Scottsboro only through Christmas Day. Can anyone give me
better directions to this cemetery? Does anyone have GPS coordinates?
