At the intersection of Route 509 and Sideway Road bordering Elliott and Carter Counties The cemetery location is near the communities of Jacobs and Enterprise, KY. 

Cemetery in disrepair, overgrown trees, vines, and ground cover. Disintegrating headstones and fieldstone markers for unmarked graves.

Some records were taken from court records showing that Jacob's land was in this vicinity. His Civil War records show that he was buried at "Enterprise, KY on the headwaters of Tygart Creek." 

Several head and foot fieldstones indicate other graves. Dates for Jacob Justice from a neighbor near the cemetery.

I walked and researched this burial site in fall of 2003.
