Directions: Hwy 278 west of Amory approximately 5 miles to top of “Cotton Gin” hill, left on Sand Hill Road approx. 1 mile. Right on Post Road for approx. ½ mile. Left on Wayne Dykes Road for approx ½ mile. Follow the path to the left side of the road along a power line right of way for about 75 feet then right on a path for about 100 feet into the wooded area. Cemetery is extremely grown-up and hard to find in the summer. There are many unmarked graves and several with unreadable markers or only footstones.
