Located:  About 100 yards off the Ernest Martin Road northeast of Utica, MS (S28T3NR4W).
Recorded:  By Mary Collins Landin, on 30 May 1971
First Grave:  1829

Remarks:  This old cemetery is completely abandoned, and is in a pasture.  It has several unmarked graves.  In 1978 it was not even visible from the road, but since then grazing has kept it more visible. Few of this Yates Family branch descendants are living in the area now.  Daniel Yates and Ignatius Yates, also born in 1795, were first cousins when they arrived in Hinds County, MS, from the Carolinas.
