This cemetery is in Hilliard Florida. From Hilliard, take County Road 108 east to FAA Facility. This is the intersection of CR108 and CR15A. Go north on CR15A for 1.6 miles. The Latter Day Saint Church is on the left. Just beyond the church is a dirt road, Oak Grove Drive, turn left. Follow the dirt road to the end (.3 mi) and you will come to the cemetery.

The cemetery is surrounded by a chain link fence and is reasonably well maintained. A smaller fenced area outside and north of the cemetery encloses one grave. This cemetery is also known as East Still Cemetery which is the major cemetery and West Still Cemetery which contains the single grave of Jefferson Murrhee.

Eula Davis (Mrs. Upton) lives in an old farmhouse on CR15A. She is the daughter of Carrie Adelia Blake and Henry Murrhee and the granddaughter of John Blake who came from Boston, Massachusetts to the Hilliard area. She says that he was one of the founders of Hilliard. Mrs. Davis is 88 (b. c1908) and said that when she was a little girl, relatives told her that there used to be graves outside the fenced area, but any markers had long ago disappeared. The small fenced area to the north of the cemetery encloses the grave of Mrs. Davis’ grandfather, Jefferson Murrhee. (pronounced Marie)
