Still looking for "Elm Tree Place"

Looking for info on a place in Meriwether County known as the Stuart M. Stout "Elm Tree Place". The following families also lived near this area: Noah Rowe, Bob Williams, Ben Rowe and Jim Rowe. Records show it was Land lot 42, 2nd District, of old Troup County. A section originally drawn by Benjamin Brown (Broun) on Dec. 11, 1834.

Ralph Williams , a descendant, wrote:

Family Burial Plot at Noah Rowe Place
The Noah Rowe burial lot is located a few hundred feet south of the old home site,at the side of a trail that led to the fields in that area. Woods extend westward from the trail,and enclose the little cemetery on it's north, west, and south sides.Some of the graves were still distinguishable in the 1960's, with the head and foot stones still in place on a few. But
others had been overrun by pulpwood trucks making a passage through the lot. Rusting
poultry wire dangled from posts and trees where it had been tacked, but was pressed to
the ground where trucks had intruded. Young trees and bushes grew among the graves. No
matter how humble the persons buried there, their last resting place should have been treated with more respect. The dust of history will cover them, but the sentiments of their living kin will be tinged with sadness at the desecration of their graves.

Does anyone know of this place? If so, could you explain to me how to find it? Any known pictures of that area? Maps?

Thanks for any help!!!
