Garfield is on the border of Sierra Co. and Dona Ana Co. on Hwy. 187.  Last little town before crossing over to Sierra Co. going north from Las Cruces. 
The cemetery is located in the foothills over looking the town of Garfield.  On 187, turn right behind the Post Office, turn right again at Two County Rd.
which is about 100 ft or so from the Post Office, turn left on Knight, watch your signs close or you will miss it.  Knight is a very good road going to the
cemetery, but when you get to the little cemetery, which I believe is the newer part, look behind you up the hill and you will see the older part of
the cemetery.  If you go there in the summer, please watch for snakes.  The desert has taken over this part of the cemetery. I was also told there is
a much older part of the cemetery on top of the hill, but it was to cold (46) and to windy to climb up there and there is no road unless you have a
4X4 to get there.  I was also told there are no headstones.  The people in this town are very friendly and willing to help you.
