Beach Family Cemetery

 

 

The Beach Family Cemetery is located near Roxie, Mississippi.  It is not far from the intersection of State Highway 33 and US Highway 84.

Driving directions from that intersection:  Travel South about 1 mile on State Highway 33 to the first road to the right. This is Beach Road.  Travel down this road about 5 miles, (it will turn to gravel after a while).  The cemetery is on the right about 100 yards off the road in a clearing visible from the road.

 

This small family cemetery is in a lovely little clearing on the edge of the forest and is guarded by an Indian Spirit Pole built and placed in the corner of the cemetery next to the woods.  The Spirit Pole was placed there by Trent Beach shortly before his tragic death on his wedding day in a car accident on March 31, 2000, shortly after his 26th birthday.
