My nephew Johnathan and I went on a trip looking for the burial site of my 4th great-grandfather James Wilson (b. 1766, d. 1857-02-11). My father Charles Sherman Wilson had told me about this cemetery in "Ball's Gap".
We found the cemetery and captured some GPS data. Here is a link to the data I posted on OpenStreetMap.
The path to the cemetery is fairly rough. I would estimate it is 20% slope and 100 yards from the road to the cemetery.

Many of the later burial's are Ball. Toward the middle to back there are Wilson family burials. Most stone's in the back are missing or crumbling. Most burials can only be recognized by the sunken earth. We did not find James Wilson but we did find his son Allen. I suspect James and/or other children are in there but we were unable to find any evidence.
It appears that the cemetery cannot be accessed by public road from the North. If you'll notice on the map, Northeast of the cemetery a few thousand feet, on Old N&W Railroad Road, there is a bypass near Rutherford Road. A railroad tunnel that collapsed decades ago is being bypassed. That bypass road appears to be private and posted as such. The only public route we found was approaching from the Genoa to the South and traveling North on Old N&W Railroad Road (County Highway 52/55).
