We'll start our trip to this cemetery at the intersection of Highway 26 West and Highway 57 North in Benndale, Mississippi. Take Highway 57 North and travel approximately 8 miles. On your left will be Salem Road, there is also a rather large sign on the left hand side at this intersection that reads "Salem Baptist Church". You will turn left on Salem road and go about mile and the Joe P. Fairley Cemetery will be on your left.

This is a small family cemetery and the family takes care of it. It is surrounded by a chain link fence and is well kept. I was given permission to walk this cemetery by Mr Gene Fairley. The earliest burial listed is in 1920.

I walked this cemetery on Oct 30, 2007, and the information was taken from headstone inscriptions and temporary grave markers.
