Traveling west on Highway 26 out of Benndale, Mississippi. You will go a couple of miles and will come to the intersection with Fairley/O'Neal road on your right. Take this right hand turn and go about 1 mile and you will come to Fairley Loop Road on your left. Take this exit and go about ½ mile until you see a mailbox on your left with the numbers 203 on it. The dirt road just before the mailbox has a gate on it. You will need to get permission from the homeowner to go through his gate and property to visit this cemetery. When you go through the gate you will travel this woods road about ¼ mile and it dead ends at the Cowart cemetery.
The cemetery is surrounded by a chain link fence and is in good condition. This is an old family cemetery and is still in use today, it is maintained by family members of those interred here.
I walked this cemetery on Dec 07, 2007, and the information was gathered using all existing and legible headstone inscriptions and temporary grave markers. There were numerous unmarked graves in the cemetery.
