Start your trip to this cemetery in Benndale, Mississippi. Here at the intersection of highway's 26 and 57, you will take 57 south. You will travel 9 miles, coming to an intersection on your left with the West Wilkerson Ferry Road. Take this exit and follow it for 1 mile. Here there is a rather large flag display on your left. We have the American and then the Christian Flags flying on separate poles, with a large wooden cross between them. Take the driveway just past this display, staying to the left of the two houses.
This is private property and permission must be obtained before you visit the cemetery. Take the left driveway and proceed into the wooded area about 1/2 mile. Here you will find a nice clearing where this cemetery is located. The Wilkerson family maintains this cemetery.
Connie Wilkerson and I walked this cemetery on Dec 20, 2008, taking information form headstone inscriptions.
