Start your trip to this cemetery in Benndale, Mississippi. Here
at the intersection of highway's 26 and 57, you will take 57 south.
You will travel 9 miles, coming to an intersection on your left
with the West Wilkerson Ferry Road. Take this exit and follow it
for 1 mile. Here there is a rather large flag display on your left.
We have the American and then the Christian Flags flying on separate
poles, with a large wooden cross between them. Take the driveway
just past this display, staying to the left of the two houses.
This is private property and permission must be obtained before
you visit the cemetery. Take the left driveway and proceed into
the wooded area about 1/2 mile. Here you will find a nice clearing
where this cemetery is located. The Wilkerson family maintains
Connie Wilkerson and I walked this cemetery on Dec 20, 2008,
taking information form headstone inscriptions.
