To get to the cemetery, go north on Hwy. 441 from Clayton. Turn left on Wolffork Road across from the motorcycle shop. Continue around Wolffork Road until you see the sign for the cemetery on the right. There’s no place to park, so you may have to borrow someone’s driveway (with permission) and walk back to the sign. Bring walking shoes and wear sturdy clothing, because once you get to the sign, you’ll have to trudge through the woods and hope that you can find the cemetery.

This photograph was taken standing in the middle of the cemetery looking back toward the road. You can see one of the markers in the lower left-hand corner of the picture.

The best time to visit Joseph’s grave is during the winter when the undergrowth has died down.
