Heading west on highway 26 out of Benndale, Mississippi you will go a couple of miles, there you will cross a small bridge. When you cross the bridge there will be a sign on your left for Sweet Pilgrim Cemetery. There is a small woods road by the sign and the cemetery is at the dead end of this small unnamed road, across the road and 1/4 mile east of the church.
The cemetery is surrounded by a fence, and there were several unmarked graves. The cemetery belongs to Sweet Pilgrim Church and they provide maintenance and upkeep for it.
I walked this cemetery on Dec 07, 2007. The information was gathered using all existing and legible headstone inscriptions and temporary grave markers.
