We will begin the trip to this cemetery on main street (old hwy 98) in Lucedale, Miss. Take Mill street south to the four way stop sign, about a mile. Turn left onro highway 613 and go approximately 4.0 miles, you will pass Union Missionary Baptist Church on your right in a very sharp curve. You will take the first dirt road to the right and on your right is a small very dense parcel of woods where you will find the cemetery.
This is a small and almost forgotten family cemetery. I was able to identify only 5 headstones in the cemetery. There are remnants of many wooden markers, however, the termites have long since removed any signs of lettering from them. The cemetery is in very bad condition, really impossible to see many parts of it.
I have spoken to a Mrs. Barbara (Mallette) Eley, who is a relative of some of those buried in this cemetery. She is to provide me with a copy of names of those known to be buried in this cemetery.
Those entries followed by an asterisk * were taken from old family records provided to me by Mrs. Eley. This is not a complete list of all burials, but is all the family has at this time.
I walked this cemetery on Mar 26, 2007, and have transcribed from all existing and legible headstone and markers.
