Godell Cemetery is on the south side of Emerald Road. Where Walker Road intersects Emerald Road from the north, you turn to the south and go up the lane leading to the farmhouse. A little over a half mile up that lane, before you get to the house, the remaining cemetery stones are placed against trees. Some are broken, some are illegible, but they are there, thanks to some unknown persons. We can assume many stones are missing.

* Marks stones not found, information was taken from previous readings and/or descendant.
