Leave Lucedale, Mississippi on highway 26 west. Go 5.1 miles and there will be an intersection with Henry Howell Loop Road on your left. Take this left turn and go .1 tenth of a mile where this road will split. You will take the right and go another .3 tenths of a mile. Here there will be a brick house with a concrete driveway on your right. You must enter this driveway to access the cemetery, however this is private property and permission should be secured before you visit the cemetery. Behind the house is a barn and if you look past the barn about 300 yards you will see a small chain link fenced in area. The land behind the barn is property of another landowner and you need permission also to cross it to the cemetery.
This is what seems to be a forgotten family cemetery, and there has been no maintenance done to it in several years. It was hard to even find the slabs and stones in all the heavy underbrush.
This transcription by Mrs. Ann Howell was completed in 1972, prior to her death. She did a lot of hard work saving cemetery information for many years. I am lucky to have been given some of this information and in it was able to find her notes on this cemetery.
I walked this cemetery Dec 02, 2008 and found the stones and slabs were so deteriorated I wasn't able to get enough readable information to have been able to submit the cemetery without Ann Howell's notes.
