Tan O. Cook Cemetery, Lynco

Located on the right mountainside at Lynco on Rt. 971 1. mile from Oceana Rt.10 N junction . A dirt road leads to a wide locked gate just off the highway. Proceed by foot up the road on the left to the top of the hill. Not visible from the road, it is difficult to see even from the dirt road. One section is enclosed by a locked chain link fence. Other burial sites have nice monuments, funeral home markers, broken tree limb markers or flowers tied to trees with no data. Be careful on this one as it is slick, with a number of dangerous deep holes on the climb.
