Family Cemetery
Greene County, Mississippi



Leaving Leakesville, Mississippi on Oak Street, you will head north toward the community of Avera, Mississippi.
You will continue north on Oak Street until you come to the city limit sign where the name of the road will change to Old Avera Road.
You continue on this road another 17.3 tenths of a mile to the intersection with Abram Smith road.
This road will be on your right, take this right hand turn and go .9 tenths of a mile where you will come to a dead end.
Here you will take a right on Simpson Bend road (this road is also called the Dog Brown Road by many local’s in the area).
You will now go .7 tenths of a mile and the cemetery will be on your right surrounded by a chain link fence.
The cemetery is in good condition and I was given permission to walk the cemetery by Mr. Earl Avera. The cemetery is owned and maintained by the Avera Family.
The cemetery was walked on May 28th by Jimmy Trussell, and Earl Avera.
