The Smylie Cemetery has been adopted and is maintained by Ann & Archie Geoghegan
The Smylie Cemetery is located between Roxie, Mississippi and the Kirby community. It is not far from the intersection of State Highway 33 and US Highway 84.
Driving directions from that intersection: Travel East on Hwy 84 about 1.5 miles to the paper mill road. Turn left on the paper mill road and go about 5 miles down this road. Just before the gravel turns to blacktop, (if you reach the blacktop, you need to turn around and go back about 1/4 mile!) look to the right and you will see a little road. Go down this little road about 300 yards and the cemetery is on the right. It is fenced and kept mowed. The cemetery is located on private property belonging to the Whitehead descendants. You should ask permission but they usually don't mind.
