SAWYER CEMETERY
CHARITY CHAPEL
WASHINGTON COUNTY, ALABAMA

From Citronelle, take Odom Rd (or John Johnson Rd) (it is known by two names), once you reach the Mobile/ Washington county line, it is approximately 1 mile (or a little less). It will be a red
gravel road that kind of forks off to the left. The road is named Sawyer Cemetery Rd but its kind of hard to notice the sign, it is just before Odom Rd dips down and then rises back up again.
