On the map below, the western red and white road is old Manchester
Hwy. Eastern short red and white is 108 to Viola. Middle black is Hwy 55 to Morrison and
Manchester and I-24. In front of the church and cemetery is Liberty Lane going from Hwy 55
to the Old Manchester Hwy on this map. The waterway is Barren Fork and Hickory Creek runs
into it. I grew up in Westwood. Campbell Smoot, Jr. and I rode our horses all over in here
and over to Liberty Lane to Mr. Rankins home which is the one with the semi-circular
driveway below. I never remember a cemetery or stones where that CEM is written in. Down
where the water way forks is a swinging bridge and the black dot west of the swinging bridge
was the home of Cowan Oldham, friend of Estes Kefauver who used to spend time there in the
summers. It was called Shangri-La. The white road circling off to the west of the red and
white is a relatively new highway. The black bars below CEM are Boyd Christian School which
shows up well in the aerial photo image below with semi-circular drive. That CEM
is no longer a cemetery. There were three graves there and when
the school was built they were removed to Old City Cemetery.
