To reach the New Zion Cemetery, beginning at the stop light on Court and Mississippi Streets in Atoka, go east on Hwy. 3, 1 1/2 miles to the Forrest Hill Road. Turn south four miles, then west .3 mile. The cemetery is on the south side of the road next to the New Zion Methodist Church.

This cemetery is under chain link fence, very well kept and is still active. It was canvassed May 7, 1980 by Gwen Walker, and at that time contained 184 marked graves and 31 unmarked ones.

The following information has just been brought to my attention, and I feel it is important to viewers.

The New Zion United Methodist Church owns all of the land that comprises the New Zion Cemetery. This was not common knowledge until I recently researched the four deeds that comprise all of the land currently owned and occupied by the New Zion United Methodist Church.
