Once we arrived in Strong, we were to go about 3 miles east on Highway 82 and turn right on Lapile Road. The cemetery was to going to be on the right about 4 miles down the road.
Well, we followed the directions and turned on Lapile Road, but we never saw a cemetery on the right. We went about 8 miles to where Lapile Road dead ended into State
Road 129; turned around; and headed back looking more closely for the cemetery. We went all the way back to Highway 82 and still didn’t see a cemetery.
So turning around again we headed back down Lapile Road turning off on side roads to see if the cemetery was really on one of these lanes.
No Luck! By this time I had reached the point of desperate measures. I stopped at a house and asked the lady of the house if she knew of any cemeteries in the area. She asked me who I was looking for and I gave her a brief description of the Duke and Nelson Family. She said there were two cemeteries in the area. For the first one, she directed me to go back down Lapile Road to State Road 129; turn left; and look for the cemetery on the right. For the second cemetery we needed to go north on Lapile Road to Highway 82; go across the highway; and continue on the road to Ebenezer Cemetery.
So with directions in mind, we started out again.
