Clay Bell Cemetery

Contributed by Jean Caddel

Location:   In a grove of trees near  Bell Branch Creek near Italy.  Take I-35 south to the Italy exit; turn right on L. R. Campbell Road for 2.6 miles.  You will see a sign at 1408 Campbell - drive down the lane 1/4 mile.  Three large crosses may be seen part way down the hill, although not the cemetery itself.  It is fenced, restored and maintained,  and still in use. Many older stones have been replaced with new ones.  R. D. ApPrice deeded a three-acre tract of land to this cemetery.
