Travel south on highway 57 out of Benndale, Mississippi. You will go 3.1 miles and on your left you will see Mixon Lake road. Take this left hand turn and now go 1.4 miles where the road will "Y", you will take the left turn onto Dogwood Drive. You will now travel about .4 tenths of a mile and as you round a curve to the right there will be a small grassy drive on your right. Take the right hand turn and the cemetery is about 50 yards in front of you at the dead end of this drive.
The cemetery is surrounded by a chain link fence and all visible graves had headstones. I was told by a person who lives near the cemetery, that at one time in recent years it was virtually unknown to anyone, but when it was discovered hidden in the thick brush, word got around about there being a cemetery found there, and some people came and cleaned it up. No one in the vicinity of this cemetery seem to know who owns it.
I walked and read this cemetery on Dec 27, 2007 and information was taken from all existing and legible headstone inscriptions.
