Location:  N 30.81491     W 085.05477
Directions:  From Highway 90 in Grand Ridge, Florida, travel North on Hwy. 69.  Turn left on C-164 (South).  Travel about .5 miles and turn left on dirt drive.  Drive around edge of fenced field - turn left to continue along fence line.  At end of fence line, turn right - drive down path into woods to cemetery.  This cemetery is difficult to find!  It is unkept, but very interesting.  A large granite stone was erected which reads "Messer Cemetery" on one side and "In Memory of the Known and Unknown Buried Here."  There is a mailbox next to the stone with a notebook containing information on the cemetery, those buried there, and notes from visitors.
