The Martin Cemetery is located on private property west of Hiway 51 near Geslin Corner, MS.

(As this cemetery is located on Private Property- please have the permission of the owners before traipsing into the cemetery!)

The first white house west of Geslin Corner is the Martin family house. The cemetery can be reached by a dirt road that starts at the first gate behind this house. After the first Left, the road winds through the woods past a pond. It passes a white shed and then a white play house on the edge of the power line right-of-way. Just beyond this is a creek with a concrete crossing. From this crossing, proceed along the road but do not take the sharp right turn at the deer stand. Instead continue straight and at the top of a steep hill, the road turns right. The cemetery will be straight ahead, behind a large oak tree.

The cemetery is surrounded by a barbed wire fence and has a simple gate. The graves are arranged to face West and a laid out in 4 or 5 rows. The headstones are spread out in all but two rows---which may be due to missing headstones. The first row has the patriarch James A. Martin(1831-1888) and beside his grave are two graves laid out on tablets. The HILL family members are buried in the third row. The fourth/fifth row has only a few graves that are visible.
