DIRECTIONS to Lane and Martin Cemeteries on Maiden Down Bay:
Coming from town of Marion on Hwy 41A, turn right on State Road 505, recently
renamed Sandhill Road. Go 1.1 miles. Turn left onto little dirt road (hardly
more than a trail). This little road turns back to the left very sharply, and
is easy to miss and drive past. There is a white sign just a few feet up the
dirt road that says 'Lane Cemetery'.
As you reach the top of the hill on the dirt road, you will see the Lane
Cemetery ahead, just in the edge of the trees on your right. To reach the
Martin Cemetery, take a sharp right at the top of the hill at the light post,
before you get to the Lane Cemetery. Weeds are high, but it is passable. Go
about 50 feet. Martin Cemetery is on the left, right beside the "road."
