Going Northwest out of Leakesville, Mississippi on Main Street (hwy. 63 north), you will come to an intersection on your left with Lackey Street. Take this left hand turn and go two and a half blocks, on your right will be the Leakesville Missionary Baptist Church. Turn into this church parking lot. The cemetery is located beside the Church building.
This cemetery is owned and maintained by the Leakesville Missionary Baptist Church. There are two cemeteries abutting each other inside a chain linked fence. It also contains Holy Trinity Cemetery on the north side. There is no division of the fenced area.
I walked this cemetery on Oct 19, 2007. All information was taken from headstone inscriptions and temporary grave markers.
