To reach cemetery from Fort Payne go 1 3/4 miles E. on Hwy 35, then 2 1/2 miles N. E. on Hwy 89 (same as Lookout Mountain Parkway) to Fischer Crossroads, then 1/4 mile S. on Fisher Road NE, then 1/4 mile E. on Hawthorne Dr. NE (behind Fischer School)
This might have started as a family cemetery, but it appears to be a community cemetery. The cemetery came into being with the first burial of Crucilla Fischer in 1866.

Charles Duncan & Armelia Adeline 'Reece' Keith --- Charles Duncan's obituary, February 1944.
Charles Duncan Keith, 80, one of the pioneer settlers of DeKalb County, passed away at his home in Fort Payne Monday afternoon. "Uncle Dunk", as he was familiarly known to his many friends, had been in poor health for some time, but his passing was quite sudden. He was born in DeKalb County and had spent practically all his life in Fort Payne. He was a member of the Rockbridge Separate Baptist church.
No one who knew Uncle Dunk Keith will need to be reminded of his many good qualities and his high Christian character. He was ever the good citizen, forthright and courageous in standing for all that is good and uplifting. He was loyal to his church; he was deeply religious. He was a good neighbor and asset to every community in which he lived. In his home he was an affectionate and tender husband and father. He has left a noble heritage to his fine family and thousands of friends. He is survived by his wife Mrs. Armellia Reece Keith; three sons William J. and C.D. Keith of Fort Payne, J.M. Keith of Birmingham; six daughters, Mrs. F.M. Crowe, Summerville, Ga., Mrs. S.B. Stinson, Valley Head, Mrs. Homer Downer, Route 3, Mrs. J.L. Pierce, Mrs. W.M. Davis, Miss Mary Keith all of Fort Payne; 28 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.

Grace W Keith - IN MEMORY - The death angel visited the home of C.D. Keith of Lookout mountain, east of Fort Payne on Tuesday, April 10th, 1917, and took from the home their second elder daughter and sister, Miss Grace Keith.
Grace was born August 19th, 1890 and was at her death 26 years of age. She professed a hope in Christ in the year of 1907 and in October 1909 joined the Baptist church at Rock Bridge in DeKalb County, Alabama, and has ever since proved a loyal and faithful member.
God in his wisdom has seen fit to take her from us and although we deeply lament the removal of her sweet society and deplore our loss, yet we bow in humble submission to Him who doeth all things well.
We shall always cherish the memory of her who was once the chum of our school days , and try to emulate her virtue.
By her death the surrounding community has lost one of its most loyal and worthy friends and relatives--her family a loving daughter and sister--and the church a faithful and obedient member.
I trust that we may all so live that when the silver thread is broken we may meet dear Grace again in the celestial city above where there will be no more sad partings.
We render to her family our kindest sympathy and commend them to Him who is the giver of all good gifts. T. J. H.
