George County, Mississippi
Weâ€™ll start at the intersection of Highway 57 and Highway 26 in
and go west until you see the Fairley/Oâ€™Neal road on your right. Near the road sign there will be another sign saying "Dirt Pit", take this right hand turn
(heading north), and go until you see a large Red & White sign again saying "Dirt Pitâ€™. Take this right hand turn onto this road (not named) other than
fence and is in good shape. The cemetery is a private cemetery and upkeep and maintenance is done by family members of ones buried here.
The cemetery was walked by Jimmy Trussell on the 8th of December 2007, and information was taken from legible temporary grave markers and headstone inscriptions.
