St. Peters Cemetery (Black)

This is an African-American cemetery located southeast of Willisville in the northeast corner of the NE 1/4 of the SW 1/4 of Section 21, Township 14 South, Range 21 West. It is fenced, but not as well maintained as it should be. It is still used for burials.
Driving directions: From Willisville, go east on County Road No. 8 a little over one mile and turn right on County Road No. 161. Go south 1/2 mile and go around a curve to your right. The cemetery will be along the road to your left. If you continue on this road and stay to your right, you will come out on Hwy. 371 about 2 miles south of Willisville.
