Location: From the stoplight at Hwy 589 in Purvis, travel north on Hwy 11 for

prior to reaching Bethlehem Baptist Church, turn left on a small gravel
road and go 0.2 mile to cemetery.

Very well maintained and surrounded by a chainlink fence about 170 by
320 feet.  A sign at the entrance reads “Boone Cemetery.”
