I did manage to find this other small cemetery from circa 1891.

No roads lead to this cemetery either...

"Rev. L.D. Hatch died, here at Blount Springs, Alabama, on the 7th of October, 1886, in the seventy-third year of his age. Mr. Hatch was a native of North Carolina, and he moved to Alabama about the year 1883. He graduated at Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and afterwards in the Theological Seminary at Princeton, New Jersey. The latter part of his life was devoted to the noble and self-sacrificing work of a missionary among the negroes in the bounds of Tuscaloosa Presbytery."

"Kind, generous, noble, and devout, he lived among us without reproach as a gentleman, patriot, and christian, held in universal esteem; and when called to a higher and better world, he died without fear,amid the universal regrets of a community in which there was not one who bore towards him the last ill-will."

Godspeed to you Mr Hatch.
