(North) on Highway 140. After Approximately 500 feet, turn right (North) on Forest Lane / Moody Cemetery Road. After about
1 and 1/2 mile, a newer house will appear up on the hill to your right. Just past (Northwest of) this house is an old tire
path leading up the hill to the tree line, where the cemetery starts.
This property is posted as no trespassing very near the cemetery. Proceed with caution.

|The Moody / Rowlette Cemetery sits on a hill above present-day Forest Lane near Paris Landing. Its
current property owners have posted no trespassing on the path leading up to the cemetery. Though the maps mark it as Moody
Cemetery, the sign reads Rowlette Cemetery. Of note, this sign also seems to have been the target of a shotgun blast at some
point in the past.
As one can imagine, this cemetery seems largely forgotten and disrespected. There were two fallen trees inside the cemetery's area on the day we visited. One of these trees had fallen straight down on top of a stone and punched it directly down into the ground. We were surprised to be able to still read some of the details on this stone.
Coupled with brush has grown up around and amongst the stones, this cemetery was a bit treacherous. Condition is very poor.
