From the intersection of Jay and Water Streets in Lock Haven (the Lock Haven Courthouse), travel west on Water Street for 1 mile.  Turn right onto PA Route 120 (Susquehanna Avenue) and travel 29.3 miles.  Turn right onto Route 144 (Drury Run Road).  Travel 11.5 miles, crossing Kettle Creek.  On the other side of the bridge, bear right on PA Route 144 and travel 2.3 miles.  A dirt road leads down the steep hill to your right, and ends in Kettle Creek.  You must ford the creek and come up on the opposite bank.  A four-wheel drive vehicle or boat is necessary and this can only be accomplished when the water is low.  Graves are in the wooded area about 100 yards back from the creek.

GPS = N41 27.208 W77 51.849  (Note that this GPS is for the point where the road goes down to the creek; the creek was too high to ford and obtain the GPS reading at this time; updated GPS information will be posted to the CCGS website)

James Wilson acquired a small plot in Leidy Township, along Kettle Creek, where he established a cemetery, in 1853.  His wife and child appear to have been the only burials made there.  The area later became a part of the Couch Farm, hence the nickname Couch Field Cemetery.
