Directions -- 4-Mile Cemetery is north of Belzoni, MS on Hwy 7
very close to the Leflore County line but is in Humphreys Co at the present time.
It is located in front of an old "Dog Trot" house at the intersection of Inverness Road and the 4-Mile Road (located on the opposite side of Inverness Road from the old 4-Mile Store -
Coca Cola sign on from of store).
There is no way to know who all was buried in this location.  A visit on September 24, 2002, revealed some markers in their original location while others appeared to be scattered over the entire area and on both sides of 4-Mile Road.  Some bases were all that was left of markers while marker tops seems as if they had been thrown where they lay at the present.  There appears to be no way to know if those markers are any where near the graves.  The entries in green are based upon the survey done on September 24, 2002.
A local fisherman/resident stated that more markers were in the water.  When the water goes down, they can be seen under the water.
