O'Neal Cemetery
George County, Mississippi

Travel north on Highway 57 for about .3 tenths of a mile, where you will see Deep Creek Road on your left. Take this left hand turn and now go 2.5 miles and the
O'Neal Cemetery will be on your left. This is a private family cemetery and upkeep is provided by them. The cemetery is surrounded by a chain link fence and has a large
American Flag displayed along with the Mississippi State flag inside the main gate. There are also several small American Flags displayed around the cemetery and on the sign.
There is a plaque under the cemetery sign which reads, "Dedicated to the memory of Master Sgt. Sean M. Cooley, born Apr. 18, 1969, Killed in Iraq Feb. 3, 2005".
Sean is one of those interred here in this cemetery. Sean was a member of the 150th Combat Engineer Battalion from Lucedale, Mississippi, he was the 21st soldier with
Mississippi
ties killed in the war on terror and the fifth Mississippi National Guard Soldier to die in Iraq. Sean started his military career as a Navy Seabee. Shortly after his
death I was sent several pictures showing the "Cooley Chapel" named in Sean's honor in Iraq, as well as two soldier's being baptized in front of the Chapel. He gave the
ultimate sacrifice for these freedoms we have today, and we will always be in debt to him and the many other veterans that have sacrificed themselves for us all. 
I walked the cemetery on the 5th of January 2008, and all information was taken from headstone inscriptions.
Thanks to the O'Neal Family for letting me walk and transcribe their family cemetery.
