According to the Winston County Cemetery Book the directions to the Tabor Family Cemetery are as follows:
From the intersection of South Church Street and Highway 15 South, travel 2 miles on 15 South and turn right on Young's Crossing Road. Continue for 1.6 miles to the home of M. Triplett on the left. The cemetery is located behind the house and permission should be secured before entering the property. The cemetery is badly overgrown.Copied by Louis Taunton on October 28, 1993.

Willaim Tabor Sr. was the son of John and Elizabeth (Sharpe) Tabor. He was born in VA and migrated to SC and fought in the Revolutionary War. He was wounded at the Battle of King's Mountain. He was nursed back to health by Susannah Tubb whom he maried on 07/05/1781. They lived in Rutherford Co. NC, later moved to SC, then TN, then Bibb Co., AL and finally to Winston County, MS about 1833.

All of this information is in the Winston County Cemetery Book compiled by Louis Taunton who is now deceased.

I hope this helps.
