Defevers Cemetery

From US Hwy 31E North of Canmer, turn East onto Defries Road.  Travel approximately one mile and turn left onto Figetts Bend Road.  Go another mile past the Johnny Russell home on the left then into a gravel driveway beyond a garage-like structure atop a wooded knoll.  The cemetery is there in a grove of trees.
