Kelley Cemetery
Attala County, Mississippi



Location: T13N-R9E-S22
Located just east of Zama beyond the school. Copied 30 March 1959. This cemetery is in fair condition. It is right beside the road - the ground slopes into a valley and then rises on the other side to a small hill on which most of the graves are located especially the older graves. There are numbers of unmarked graves in this cemetery.
