The cemetery is located off of Hwy 10S. out of Lafayette go 4-5 miles and turn left on the 2nd road past Meadorville Missionary Baptist Church.

Family memories:May remberances
Posted by: Sherry Rains on May 26 2010 11:17
Whoo I didn't know so much could happen in one month!!!! My son, Landis, had his 25th birthday, Mothers Day, a pre-school graduation for Caroline who is 4y/o, a graduation from Jo Byrns High for my granddaughter Linsey then a graduation party for her on Sunday, which by the way was a blast a great big old fashioned cook-out, a graduation from the eighth grade for my grandson Michael, and a graduation from Springfield High School for my granddaughter Rachel. That is 3 grandchildren down and 9 more to go If I figured it right which is questionable they want all be graduated until approximately 2030 I will ONLY be 78y/o. I have been blessed in more ways than one.
