Mixon Cemetery
George County, Mississippi

 
Travel south on highway 57 out of Benndale, Mississippi. You will go 3.1 miles and on your left you will see Mixon Lake road. Take this left hand turn
and now go 1.4 miles where the road will "Y", you will take the left turn onto Dogwood Drive. You will now travel about .4 tenths of a mile and as you
round a curve to the right there will be a small grassy drive on your right. Take the right hand turn and the cemetery is about 50 yards in front of you at the
dead end of this drive. The cemetery is surrounded by a chain link fence and all visible graves had headstones. I was told by a person who lives near the cemetery,
that at one time in recent years it was virtually unknown to anyone, but when it was discovered hidden in the thick brush, word got around about there being a
cemetery found there, and some people came and cleaned it up. No one in the vicinity of this cemetery seem to know who owns it.
Jimmy Trussell walked the cemetery on the 27th of December 2007, and information was taken from headstone inscriptions.

Travel south on highway 57 out of Benndale, Mississippi. You will go 3.1 miles and on your left you will see Mixon Lake road. Take this left hand turn and now
go 1.4 miles where the road will "Y", you will take the right turn onto Parker cemetery road. Go .8 tenths of a mile to the dead end. Here you will be in the driveway
of a private home, the cemetery is located behind the house a short distance. The cemetery is surrounded by a chain link fence, but was in need of a good cleaning.
I was able to find only four graves inside the fence and there was one the homeowner told me about that is located outside the fence. He wasn't sure why the grave
wasn't inside the fence, however you will see that it is the most recent burial, it had been 73 years since the last burial had taken place here.I could not confirm
ownership or who is responsible for upkeep of this cemetery.
