This old family cemetery, the earliest burial appears to be Reddin Turner - d. Dec 10,1875, is situated between Turner and Palestine Roads on a narrow country lane,Ben Turner Road, in rural Allen Parish. In the Tenmile Community. On the property there are: the cemetery, with a hurricane fence; the church (built in 1933), and the new church hall. Although regular church services are no longer scheduled there, the church/hall are used for wakes, funerals, reunions of various kinds, gospel "singings" and the annual Memorial Service, which includes the cemetery association business meeting, a church service, remembrances of deceased family members and a feast of barbeque and "covered dish" foods.

The Memorial Service is held the first Saturday of August each year, with the business meeting starting at 10:00 a.m. The actual memorial church service follows the business meeting, and the dinner follows the church service. Each year an ancestor is memorialized through stories/memories of their children, grandchildren, cousins and friends.
