Spanish Oak Church Cemetery

Read Mar 4, 2003 by Bonnie Evans.

From Hwy. 16, go south on Hopewell Rd. (which is about a mile east of the Neshoba-Kemper line) about a mile. Turn right onto a dirt road (this is a narrow road and in pretty good condition in dry weather) and go 0.6 mile. The old, wood framed, white church is on the left and the fairly well-kept cemetery enclosed in a fence behind the church. They are located in T10N R14E S7, a quiet and peaceful setting in the woods.
