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
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.
