Woodard Cemetery

GPS 312526N 890023W

Perry County Line Rd

Perry County, MS

North out of Richton, turn left on Whitfield Rd. Go 5.8 miles and turn right on the unmarked road. It's and oil lease road so it might be locked. Follow the road for about 1-1/2 miles. Just after you cross the power line right of way, look for an opening in the trees. The cemetery is just a short way back in the trees. I would have never found the cemetery if I didn't have the exact GPS coordinates. If the gate on the road of Whitfield Rd is locked, there is another way to get in. Contact me for directions.

I did find something strange at the cemetery. There is a 2 foot deep hole dug in the center of one of the graves that looks like it was dug with post hole diggers.
