The Squire Sol Adams Family Cemetery, which I visited on 5 July 2014, is located a short distance up the hollow behind the Sol Adams cabin at Whirlwind on Harts Creek, Logan County. It is located on the hill behind the cabin to the left of the road and creek going up the hollow. You can drive to the cemetery.
