Old Brooks Cemetery Directions:  From RT 13 west of Marion, take 148 south to Grassy Road and turn right. Take this to Wolf Creek Road and turn left. Go for a while until you come to Mt Hebron Road and turn right. (there is just a regular green street sign). The church is on the left and the cemetery is right next to it. To get to the Old Brooks Cemetery continue from Mt Hebron Church. This road turns to gravel. The cemetery is about 1/2 mile down the lane on the left. To return to civilization from these cemeteries please turn around and follow the directions back. If you continue down the gravel road you will find yourself lost on one of the many gravel back roads of Union Co.
