Directions: From I-75, take Highway 20 East. Travel about four miles. You will see a General Store on the right at the corner of Wilderness Camp Road. Turn right on this road. Travel about 2 ½ miles. You will pass a fire station on the left. The next left will be Goodson-Rodgers Road. This is a gravel road with a locked gate across it. There is room to park your car and then walk around the gate. Go about 2/10 of a mile, bearing to the right at the fork. The cemetery is scattered in several parts at the end of the road. There are many tombstones that cannot be read in this cemetery.

Note: The transcriptions for the Goodson Cemetery are from one section. Although most of the cemetery in the middle is overgrown, we were able to get to the Stroup, Goodson, Rogers, and many others buried in the lower part. Most of the overgrowth is a huge briarpatch.
