The Lee Cemetery No. 2 is located in Mississippi off Highway 26 west of the Pearl River County and Stone County border. To find this cemetery, drive 13 miles west from Wiggins, MS on Highway 26. Turn left on Red Hill Church Road. Drive 3.4 miles until Red Hill Church Road dead ends into Slick Lee Road to the left and Jess Williams Road to the right. Turn right on Jess Williams Road and immediately park in the drive entrance on your left. The cemetery is set back off the road about a hundred yards on private property.
On June 27, 2004 Howard Baulch visited this cemetery and took photos of the tombstones. He did not meet the owner, but the neighbor across the street told him that the owner would not mind cemetery visits. Howard's great-granduncle, Elijah E. Lee, and many of his family are buried here. The transcriptions and tombstone photos are presented below. Comments in parentheses are not on the tombstone and are additional information offered by the author.
