Exit I-10 north on the road that goes into Stennis and take the first road to the left. Follow this road to the old road and turn left and go almost back to I-10. Watch carefully on the left (east) for a small area that has a clearing of trees. Turn in & park. Walk back past an old iron crossing gate. Go to the Right and walk a ways down looking to your right. There are 5 or 6 gravesites inside the woods.
