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 ½ 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.
