Travel northwest out of Lucedale, Mississippi on highway 198 about
4miles. Turn left onto highway 98 (going northwest), and go another
mile. Here you will see a small store on your right (Carolynís Grocery),
directly across the highway on your left (south) turn onto Bexley
Road South and continue for .4 mile. The cemetery will be on your
right beside a church.
This cemetery belongs to Saint James Baptist Church and they
provide the upkeep. It is surrounded by a chain link fence and
there were several unmarked graves in the cemetery.
All information was gathered from headstone inscriptions and
temporary grave markers, when I walked this cemetery on Dec 22,
