Jesse Hughes Bramlett Cemetery, Pontotoc County, Mississippi

Coming from highway 15 toward Toxish Baptist Church. Turn left on the road at crossroad. Go to 1st Mobile home on right. The cemetery is on west side of road about 100 yards. You will have to walk across the field to the woods. I think it is in the last group of woods. It is at the edge of the woods next to the field with a sign next to woods. (You also can stop at the older brick house on Toxish RD before the crossroad, walk behind the house and follow the edge of group of woods to to end)
