Grave Location Description

When you enter the gate, the road curves to the right. Almost at the end of the road, look on the left for “80” and park here. Every grave going downhill is grave 80. Walk downhill for 17 rows and you’ll be at the Gamble marker. Bill Hanna is next to it, on the right. The graves are very well marked.
