Traveling west from Lucedale, Mississippi on Highway 26 you will pass a rather large cemetery on your left (large sign over gate "Shady Grove", continue west a short distance and you will come to an intersection of highway 26 and Old highway 26. Take a left turn onto Old highway 26 and travel 1.2 miles. The road will make a sharp turn to the left and at the beginning of this turn you will see James Howell Cemetery road on your right. Take this right hand turn and go 1/2 mile and the cemetery is at the dead end of this dirt and grassy road.
This cemetery is well maintained, and surrounded by a chain link fence. There are a few unmarked graves as well as some that have markings that have deteriorated over the years to a point they are unreadable. The cemetery is owned and maintained by the Howell family.
All information was taken from headstone inscriptions when I walked this cemetery on Apr 07, 2007. The oldest marked grave in this cemetery is dated 1896.
