Turn right on Centennial Road and go for approximately 4.7 miles. The cemetery is on your left on the top of a rise in a cow pasture about 250 yards from the road. Easier access may be had by turning on Centennial Church Rd on your left and entering the pasture from there.

Cemetery Status: Inactive

The cemetery is near the Jackson Shoulderbone plantation house (circa 1850), which is across Centennial Road and slightly south of this cemetery. However there is no known record of former owners of the house being buried in this cemetery (they are buried elsewhere).

The cemetery has been fenced by the current owner of the Jackson Shoulderbone plantation, but there are no marked graves. The fenced area is circular and about 100' in diameter.
