Foshee is a fairly small cemetery with a cyclone fence surrounding it and an
iron pipe entrance gate with the named arched over the top.

Just east of Merryville, turn off LA 190 at the A.W. Sibley Road (there was a sign which said Foshee's Concrete Products). Go 1.9 miles, then turn sharp back to the left at the cemetery sign. This well-kept cemetery will be at the end of the road about 1/4 of a mile from the sharp turn.

The community and/or caretaker is to be commended for the care of the cemetery in general and the lack of mold, etc., on the tombstones. Foshee Cemetery looks exceptionally nice and neat.
