Traveling south from Lucedale, Mississippi on Highway 63 south you will go 4.8 mile. Here you will come to the intersection with highway 63 four lane by-pass, take a left onto this road. Now continue south for another 6.0 miles, turning right or west onto Mount Pleasant Road and go 1.5 mile.
You will see a sign on the left "Mount Pleasant Cemetery", take a left on the woods road beside the sign. Go straight on this road for .3 mile and the cemetery will be in front of you and also to your right. You will need to park on the left hand side as some graves are not visible in the tall grass. There are many unmarked graves, seems no upkeep or maintenance has been done here in quite some time.
II was given permission to walk this cemetery on Apr 26, 2007 by Mr. Solly Cowan, and all information was taken from headstone inscriptions and temporary grave markers.
