We'll start our trip on Highway 98 west in George County, Mississippi. Leaving the city of Lucedale you will travel west until you come to the Greene County, Mississippi road sign. Here you will continue northwest approximately 9 miles, where you will see Midway Missionary Baptist Church on your right. There is a dirt road just past the church building, turn right on this road and it will dead end 1 � miles ahead.
This cemetery is located in the woods to your right at the end of this road. It is surrounded by a chain link fence and is well kept. This is a family cemetery, that is maintained by Marc Merritt and Andy Hillman. Marc Merritt is the Great Grandson of J.D. Daughdrill and Mrs. Elizabeth (Breland) Daughdrill who are among those buried here.
The cemetery is on private property and permission to visit the cemetery should be obtained from Marc Merritt. Mrs. Etta Moss was visiting with relatives on this side of the river, she died and due to high water in the river they were unable to take her home to be buried, so she was buried in this cemetery.
I walked this cemetery on Nov 19, 2007. All information was taken from headstone inscriptions and temporary grave markers.
