Directions:

Head west on Highway 90, and turn left to continue on Highway 90 where it splits into the 607. After about 7.7 miles turn right on the 604. It's the last right hand turn you can make before the bridge. Turn right again on Washington Street (about 1/2 mile), then take the first left on Hancock Avenue. The cemetery will be to your right, about a block down this road.
