I could give you some really strange directions but they work if you follow them. Also this is the most fantastic cemetary I have visited in a long time. Coming from Marion into Waldo you have to go to the far end of Waldo going away from Marion. You have to cross the interstate there will be a cemetary on your right that is interesting but this is not yours. Look for an access road running next to the interstate on your left turn there. I know it does not look promising. On the right you are going to find a sign of sorts that says something about Old Fort Morrow. Soon after (go slow) their is a little sign on Wyatt Cemetary. Now it looks as if you are pulling into someone's driveway (house on your left) pull in, next there is an old gate that may or may not be open (or there was yet in 2000)go back that lane watch for a turn off to the left there is a hill and at the top of the hill there is room to park (take mosquito stuff,a small mirrow or foil if you are taking pictures)When you enter the cemetary you will feel as if you are stepping into another time. there are a few graves at the front that are newer but for the most part they are old going back to our ancestors that fought in the Revolution. There are a row of graves across from my gggggrandparents that are of unknown soldiers. You are so close to the interstate but what you hear is the river in back and the birds and bugs. It is calm and peaceful and well tended.
