Watkins Grave

From Mt Enterprise, take Hwy 84 west about 18 miles and turn right (north) onto FM 839. In just less than 2 miles, the road makes a hard "S" curve. In the 2nd curve, turn left (south) onto CR 4271. Go just past CR 4271 A and watch on the right side of the road for the grave. The grave is on private property but can be seen from the fence.
