Hwy 35 North from Kosciusko. Turn left onto Attala County Road 3120.Pass Masonic Lodge on the left and brick church on the right. Small driveway (very hard to see) on right. Follow this trail into the woods until the trail forks. Take the left fork. Almost immediately to your left is the cemetery. This is on private property.
This is a small family cemetery established in 1868. Permission should be obtained from the property owner to visit the cemetery.
I walked and read this cemetery Jul 20, 2011. This includes all existing and legible stones and markers at that time.- Lisa Owens
