Directions To The Grave of J.M. Northcross

Originally J.M. Northcross was buried in the Northcross Cemetery in Bailey Station, Tennessee. In 2006 several of the family graves were moved to Magnolia Cemetery in Collierville, Tennessee. Magnolia Cemetery is just east of Memphis, Tennessee. On Hwy. 72 head east of Memphis. In Collierville, turn left on Quinn Rd. (Note if you pass the Winfield Dunn Pkwy. you've gone too far) Quinn Road goes right beside the cemetery. Head to the far end and turn right on Keough Road. Enter the entrance of the cemetery on the north side of the cemetery. Go to the center and head through the roundabout. Continue straight ahead like you are heading to the office. Just past the center circle, the Lauderdale plot will be on your left.

**Special thanks to Tom L. Childers and Charlie Wayne Kilpatrick for assisting in the burial location. They, along with your web editor, took a trip into northern Arkansas to find the graves of gospel preachers of yesteryear in November, 2014. We traveled together three days and located the final resting places of nearly forty preachers and their families. It was a great trip. Many of the personalities we researched were chronicled in Boyd E. Morgan's book, Arkansas Angels, or later in Dr. Michael L. Wilson's book, Arkansas Christians: A History of the Restoration Movement in Randolph County, 1800-1995
