Cemetery surveyed by Jimmy Trussell,

We will begin the trip to this cemetery on main street (old hwy. 98) in Lucedale, Miss. Take Mill street south to the four way stop sign( 1.01 tenthsof a mile).
Turn left on highway 613 and go approximately 4.0 miles, you will pass Union Missionary Baptist Church on your right in a very sharp curve. You will take
the first dirt road to the right and on your right is a small very dense partial of woods. I was able to identify only  5 headstones in the cemetery.
There are remnants of many wooden markers, however, the termites have long since removed any signs of lettering from them. The cemetery is in
very bad condition , really impossible to see many parts of it. I have spoken to a Mrs. Barbara (Mallette) Eley, who is a  relative of some of those
buried in this cemetery. She is to provide me with a copy of names of those known to be buried in this cemetery. I will list the ones I actually was
able to transcribe information from first and then will make a note as to the other names I am providing.
