Submitted by Bonnie Evans
Lynville Cemetery, Kemper Co., MS, 6/3/2002, listing by Bonnie Murphey Evans; revisited, additions and corrections 9/5/2002.

Lynville Methodist Church is red brick with four white columns and a white steeple across Lynville Rd. from the cemetery. All are very clean and well-kept. To get there, take Hwy. 397 from DeKalb to Lynville, turn right onto Kellis Store Rd., and the church is nearly immediately on the right. Located in T12N R14E S25, it is easily reachable from any number of routes, including Hwy. 495N from Hwy. 16, Lynville Rd. (note that it is called Lynville Drive on the county map) from Hwy. 16, Kellis Store Rd. from Hwy. 39, Hwy 21 from either Philadelphia or from Neshoba County, or Hwy. 397 from Louisville, among others slightly more circuitous.
