Sullivan-Edwards Cemetery is located in Todd County about 4 miles west of Clifty, roughly half way between Clifty and Kirkmansville before the Howell Edwards bridge. When driving from Clifty on Route 107, looking on the south side of the road, turning left on a small gravel drive; the cemetery is about 200 feet ahead on the right.

In years past, this cemetery was in very poor shape, grown up with very large trees, wooded land, many broken stones. Recently, at the time of this writing, 2010, the land has been cleared out and timbered. Through the years of neglect, some of the cemetery stones had been broken, leaving the cemetery in poor shape. Thankfully, the owner of this land has been helpful in restoring the cemetery, also, Avia Pritchett, a descendant of many of the Edwards buried here, has contributed much effort to the restoration of this cemetery.

Several early settlers are in this cemetery, including Andrew Jackson Edwards, son of Revolutionary War soldier David Edwards, and Howell B. Edwards, son of early settler Thomas Edwards. Another early settler John Daggie Bivins is also buried here. Many think that Thomas Edwards who settled this area in about 1805 may also be buried here.
