To reach the Pride Cemetery from Old Lee Highway in Cherokee, Alabama, travel north on North Pike Road for 3.6 miles. Turn (left) onto Smokey Road and go approximately 1- miles passing under the Natchez Trace Parkway. Continue straight at the curve in the road, to the cemetery on the right side of the road on a little hill.

 

The Pride Cemetery is in Western Colbert County, Alabama. It is in need of maintenance but is better than some. The oldest birth date here is that of Nathaniel J. Pride, being born in North Carolina 06 May 1795. The first burial of a marked and known grave is that of Susan Jane (Martin) Pride in 1851. There are at least 31 graves here with only rock markers.
