Traveling east from Lucedale, Mississippi on Hwy 198E we went approximately 2.0 miles. Here we took a right hand turn onto Mill Street for 1.3 mile to the intersection. Turn left onto highway 613 and continue for 4.4 mile. The road makes a hard left turn here, take the road to the right onto Cooks Corner Road and go west 1.2 mile. Then turn left onto Marshall Smith road, going south 2.2 tenths of a mile. There you will stop at a four way stop intersection. Proceed straight through this intersection continuing another .7 mile.
There will be a large two story building on your right, turn in this driveway and go .1 tenth of a mile toward the wooded area behind this building. On your left in a clearing will be a large solitary pecan tree and in the edge of the woods in front of you will be this cemetery.
The Parkers have a deed for the cemetery and are instrumental in the upkeep done here. The cemetery is surrounded by a chain link fence, however, around the chain link fence a short distance father out in the woods there is another fence and concrete posts that are from an earlier fence. There are no graves outside the chain link fence and it was put up to make the cemetery smaller and easier to maintain.
I suggest if anyone wishes to visit this small family cemetery, they obtain permission to do so from the landowner and owner of cemetery.
I walked this cemetery on Apr 25, 2007 with Jimmie Holland (landowner of property that surrounds the cemetery) and Mr. & Mrs. Vallie Parker. Mrs. Parker is the grand daughter and great grand daughter of those buried in this cemetery.
