Take highway 98 East out of Lucedale, Mississippi. You will go approximately 9 miles, you will see the large river bridge in front of you, and just before you start up on the bridge there is a road on your right. This is the Agricola/Latonia Road, take this right hand turn and proceed .7 tenths of a mile. You will have just crossed over a railroad track and then a small concrete bridge. When you cross the bridge there is a dirt road on your left, turn onto this dirt road.
You will have a locked gate across this road, and the key must be obtained from the land owner. Once the gate has been opened you will then stay on this dirt road for about 1.2 miles. The cemetery is about 40 yards off the side of the main dirt road. There is a partial fence left on two sides of what appears to be a small family cemetery. The story has it that there were at one time 7 graves in this cemetery.
I walked this cemetery on Dec 16, 2008, and the information was taken from headstone and temporary grave markers. There is one unmarked grave in this cemetery.
