This cemetery is bordered on the south by the I-20 off ramp to Montevallo Road, on the west by Montevallo Road, on the north by a private residence and on the east by Monticello Circle.

From Crestwood Boulevard in Irondale, turn north on Montevallo Road and go under I-20 for about a block and turn right on Monticello Road. Travel about 30 feet and then turn right on Monticello Circle. The cemetery is located at the end of the Monticello Circle cul-de-sac. Westbound on I-20 take the Montevallo Road exit and turn right following the above directions

Traveling eastbound on I-20 take the Oporto Madrid Exit to the right about one block to Crestwood Boulevard. Travel east on Crestwood about three blocks to Montevallo Road and then turn left. The cemetery is visible on your immediate right.

This is a private cemetery. The ownership is unknown. It appears to be well maintained but has suffered some vandalism and damage from the elements. There could be as many as 30 graves marked by stone or unmarked altogether. The earliest burial appears to be that of Solomon H. Bush in 1882 but there may have been previous burials.

This transcription was conducted on Apr 03, 2007, and it is a complete transcription of all readable stones in the cemetery.

(Note: Graham married Sarah Ellen Bush on Jul 22, 1865 in Coosa County but I was unable to locate her grave in this cemetery. She was the daughter of Solomon H. Bush. She first married Solomon Sasnett. He was killed or died in the Civil War. William H. Sasnett below is probably one of their sons. There were two Solomon Sasnetts in Coosa County in 1860 and their ages were only a couple of years apart. The second Solomon Sasnett married Mary E. Bush, probably the daughter of Nathaniel R. Bush of Montgomery County, AL)
