Byrd -- Helveston Cemetery

George County, Mississippi

Leaving Lucedale, Mississippi on highway 26 west you will cross over the highway 63 by-pass intersection. Continue west for another 2.3 miles and
you will see Central/Basin Road on your left. Take this left hand turn and now go south on it for 5.7 miles, and the Byrd-Helveston cemetery will be
left hand side of the road. The cemetery is a family cemetery and they provide the upkeep for it, also it is surrounded by a chain link fence.
There were a couple of unmarked graves in the cemetery. Information was taken from all legible temporary grave markers and headstone inscriptions.
The cemetery was walked by Jimmy Trussell on the 11th of December 2007.
