Traveling west out of Lucedale, Mississippi on Highway 26 West. You will come to an overpass over Highway 63, Continue west on highway 26 another 12.6 miles after you cross the overpass. The church and cemetery will be on your right. From Benndale drive southwest on Hwy 26 West for just over a mile. Turn right onto Ely Cooper Road, the cemetery will be on the north or right side of road.
The cemetery belongs to the Little Sweetwater Church and maintenance is done by church members and family members of those buried here. The cemetery is in good shape and is surrounded by a chain link fence.
I walked this cemetery on Dec 07, 2007. The information was gathered using all existing and legible headstone inscriptions and temporary grave markers. There were several unmarked graves in the cemetery.
