The Norris Hill Cemetery is located southeast of Fountain Hill. To reach the cemetery, begin at the intersection of U. S. Highway 425 and Ashley Road 92 in Fountain Hill. Go east on Ashley Road 92 for 1.3 miles to the Norris Hill Road. Then turn left (north) and the cemetery will be less than one-tenth mile down that road. The precise location is Latitude North 22 degrees, 21 minutes, 22.9 seconds and Longitude West 91 degrees, 49 minutes, 31.8 seconds. This listing, based on a list of markers provided by Frank Denson and then updated, is complete, but there are many graves in the cemetery which are not marked or for which funeral home markers are missing or no longer legible.
