Follow FM 562 South from Double Bayou to the town. Turn Right at the
service station and feed store to find the Nelson Oyster company. Contact
any of the Nelson family for permission to enter land and the exact
directions. The cemetery is approximately one half mile east of the
historical marker noting Sarah Paschal Ridge Pix.
Cemetery is located on land owned by Jerry & Ben Nelson. Jerry Nelson
Shrimp and Oysters is the only major firm in the town. The area is snake
and alligator infested.
The cemetery is still maintained by the McNeir Family and has a recent
addition of a wought iron fence. It is in Excellent condition.
I have transcribed from a visual of the tombstones on Oct 20, 2001.
